In Jesus’ Great Commission, Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus gave a single command to the church: “Make disciples.”
Jesus did not intend His Great Commission to be detached from the local church. He intended our obedience to His Commission to take place in the context of local-church life.
Ministry is not about the whims or thoughts of a given individual pastor, or the personal values of that person. The foundation of a true church, and the ministry that flows out of it is founded on God's word and direction to His church.
