Discipleship: The Mission, Message #2

Our Purpose

Last Sunday (our first service as Harvest Baptist Church) we studied what the Bible says about our purpose. Why are we here—as individuals and as a church? Why did we start yet another church in Kansas City?

  • Our Purpose: To glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

That was good place to start, but it left us with a question: How do we do that? That is our mission...

Our Mission

In this message we focus on what the Bible says about what we are to do in order to fulfill our life's purpose of glorifying God and enjoying Him forever.

  • Our mission: To be and make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Mission (to be and make disciples) has two aspects: evangelism and edification.  When we speak about discipleship, we need to get used to using these terms because they communicate a simple picture of biblical discipleship in the Church Age.

  • Evangelism: A disciple is made, in the sense of created, through evangelism.
  • Edification: A disciple is made, in the sense of molded (formed), through edification.

Both together (evangelism and edification) form what we call "discipleship" (i.e., making disciples).

Our Church

This is why we started Harvest Baptist Church: So that we, as individuals and as a church family, can glorify God and enjoy Him now and forever by being and making disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. That is our purpose and that is our mission. That is what we aim to do.
