At Adventure Christian Church we take Jesus’ instruction about sharing our faith seriously! In
Matthew 28:19-20 Jesus said to his disciples:
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
This plan, commonly called “the Great Commission,” is Christ’s winning strategy for reaching new people and growing them up in the Lord. If you look carefully you’ll see there are four main components to the Great Commission:
1. REACH out to people in “all the nations”. This means we are supposed to reach all kinds of people in all kinds of places! Paul said, “Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some.” (1 Cor 9:22)
2. CONNECT people to Jesus and his church “baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Baptism is the place where you formally connect with Jesus as a new part of the body of Christ.
3. EQUIP these new disciples by teaching them to “obey all the commands” of Jesus Christ. People don’t mature magically, they must be taught!
4. DISCIPLE-making is the goal of the Great Commission. Jesus was telling his disciples (followers) that their main priority is to create more disciples.
