How Can We Know What the Church Is Supposed to Do?
What is the mission of the church? Although most Christians might agree that the church’s mission is whatever God calls his church to do, many times that calling seems open to interpretation–with each local church adopting whatever tasks seem most aligned to its values, demographics, and political views. But what does the Bible say about Christ’s mission for his church?
In this short book, Jonathan Leeman argues from Scripture that the mission of the church is first and foremost to make disciples–the task that each local assembly is called to do collectively–and to be disciples–the task for each individual Christian. He equips readers to obey this disciple-making mission both inside and outside the local church as they seek to follow Christ’s call and make God’s glory known in all the world.
