Question 4: Churches Purpose

April 1st, 2004

As ‘The Purpose Driven Everything’ takes over the Christian world, churches are thinking about their purpose. This is both sad that we would forget but encouraging as christians we begin to understand our role in this world and God’s involvement through us.

Biblically, the purposes that every church should be seeking to fulfill are worship, evangelism, training, encouragement, fellowship, and service. It is important to find a church that takes these seriously and is actively working to make them happen. God has saved us so that we can be the ‘light to the world’ that we would ’spread the good news of Christ’ these ideas are called “missiology” or studing the mission of the Church as God planned it.

Matthew 28: 18-20
18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

So the next question to ask is…

Does this church see it’s purpose to glorify/worship God and evangelize the lost?
