When the church loses its focus, it loses its effectiveness. God has given the church a specific mission and message to proclaim. We have the privilege and responsibility of pointing others to Christ by displaying, declaring, and defending the gospel. There is no greater means by which we can glorify God than by making much of Christ.
But, this is a difficult calling because the world opposes Christ and His Church. We live in the world, but we must not be of it. Join Gabe Tribbett in 1 Timothy 3"14-16 as we look at the church's mission--to know and display the gospel and to defend and proclaim the message that saved us. This is our calling--this is our privilege.
