Mission

by on September 16, 2011

Here’s an interesting question to ponder…

Is the mission of the church distinct from the mission of individual Christians?

What do you think? This is a very important question to understand. It has implications with how we live out our daily lives, and how we think about the church. Here’s Kevin DeYoung’s very helpful answer:

God calls individual Christians to different tasks. Some may be artists or teachers or politicians or farmers. We can do all sorts of things to the glory of God. But God has given the institution of the church a unique task. She can support artists and love farmers, but God has not commanded the Church to paint or to grow corn. The Church is called to make disciples.

This is from an interview with Kevin DeYoung and Greg Gilbert about their upcoming book, What is the Mission of the Church?
