(Matt 28:18-20 ESV) And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Before His ascension to heaven, Jesus gave the disciples the commission to make disciples as they went out in the world. The book of Acts records how the disciples obeyed this command. As they reached their communities with the Gospel, disciples were made and churches were established. Their example of making disciples and forming these disciples into local churches is our strategy.
Our desire to make disciples is fueled by the promise Jesus made to call people to Him from every tribe, tongue, people and nation. We long for the day when missions will end, when all of the disciples join Jesus to worship and adore Him forever.
