Now lets see the commission and purpose of the church.
All power and authority is given to Jesus. “On one occasion the tempter took Jesus to a high mountain in order to show Jesus the kingdoms of this world and their glory in order to induce him to avoid the cross in obtaining the kingdom. Now Jesus himself shows his disciples the kingdoms of this world after calvary and points out the conquest his sacrifice and his love shall achieve through the gospel.At first Jesus did not stand in the midst of the disciples but a little in front of them. As they fell down to worship him, he moved close to them and then spoke to them face to face.
Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
“Go”… “Teach all nations”…. “Baptize them”…. “Teach”….
In our day and age the understanding of mission is too broad.
A baptist named William Carey partially recovered the sense of urgency to take the gospel to the whole world. But in the great missionary advance of the nineteenth century, however, missionaries were not always clear as to their objectives. Mission took the forms of establishing schools and hospitals, opposing inhumane practices such as suttee and footbinding, and launching campaigns for sanitation.
We have multiplied parachurch missions as arms of the church in order to be responsible for every conceivable type of good work from feeding the hungry to medical work to care and so on. These are great endeavors but do not classify as missions.
Missions is wherever it is possible to proclaim the gospel with the purpose to form churches. Any community of people without an accessible church—wherever they reside in the world—is a mission field. And it is the responsibility of existing churches to fill those spiritual voids with believing congregations.
