Understanding the Great Commission
God means to fulfill the Great Commission through local churches.
How did the apostles and the churches of the New Testament obey the Great Commission? By gathering Christians together in churches. The church is God’s plan for evangelism, discipleship, and the Great Commission. This connection between the Great Commission and the church dramatically impacts how both leaders and members should think about their work of making disciples. We do it together.
Note: Due to the fact that 9Marks is a non-denominational organization, The Church Basics Series is not branded as a 9Marks resource. However, we believe it is widely helpful to the worldwide church and commend it for use.
