Our Mission is to glorify God through lives changed by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This mission has many facets, but the foundation of the mission is the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the rock upon which His church is built, the cornerstone of our knowledge of God and our faith in God. The Great Commission found in the last few verses of Matthew 28 was Jesus’ mission for His church. The way we are to accomplish this mission is to proclaim the truth about Jesus to all the nations, making disciples of them, baptizing them, and teaching them all that Jesus has commanded of us. This message is what we are studying in this four week series, THE GOSPEL. This week we are talking about part three: JESUS (who He is, what He has done, and what He has promised to do).
