The mission of the Church/Ekklesia.
- The mission of the Church is found in Luke 19:10 – “…for the Son of Man (Jesus) has come to seek and to save that which was loss.” – To go out and make disciples in the world – Matthew 28:19.
- The mission of the Church is to radically and supernaturally change its surroundings rather than being changed by them, to create an environment of multiplication, to be a gateway for our region and the world to the eternal God, and to make disciples for Jesus Christ.
The Lord has a plan.
- God has a plan and wants to reveal His plan to His people – Amos 3:7 (NKJV) – Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
- But we must accept that the Lord’s plan may differ from our plan – Isaiah 55:8 (NKJV) – “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
