The Purpose of Church

What’s the task of a church?  The church is a group of people who have made Jesus Lord.  So they present themselves for service.  What does Jesus want to do?   

the purpose of church diagram
  1. He wants people to accept him as their rightful Lord and King.
  2. He wants people to grow to be like him.  After all, God created us in his image!
  3. He wants people to show compassion to others.  The world is full of hurting people.
  4. He wants people to fight for justice, to oppose the oppressor.
  5. He wants people to take care of the wonderful world he has entrusted to us.

As a church we don’t do all of these things.  But they are aspirations.
