A message from Pastor Brandon:
As a Christian church, North Main exists to be disciples of Christ, and to make disciples of Christ. This simple phrase – to be and to make – defines why we exist and what our purpose is.
In Matthew 28:16-20, the resurrected Jesus led his disciples to a mountain in Galilee before he ascended to heaven. As they met him there, Jesus’ final words were a mission statement. In fact, these words are the mission statement for God’s church today. Written five times in the New Testament, Jesus commissions his disciples to make disciples. Read along:
Matthew 28:18-20 (NLT), 18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 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.”
Over the next four sessions we will be looking at what it means to be Jesus’ disciples, and what it means to make Jesus’ disciples through the lens of what is called the Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20.
At North Main, we call this: “Developing completely committed followers of Christ who know Christ intimately, grow in Christ continually, and go in Christ daily.” This is just another way of reaffirming our commitment to Jesus’ mission for his church.
Thank you for joining this journey, and being willing to be disciples who make disciples, and thank you for being “all in” in your commitment to be a part of a community of believers whose desire is to always make Jesus the subject of what we do.
