“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.'”
“And he (Jesus) said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.'”
As many of you know, To Every Tribe, the mission agency through whom I am sent as a missionary, has as their mission statement the following: To Every Tribe exists to extend the worship of Christ among all peoples by mobilizing the church, training disciple-makers and sending missionary teams to plant churches among the unreached.
In other words, this mission statement is simply an attempt to capture, with a little more specifics, what Matthew (28:18-20) and Mark (16:15-16) have communicated to us, the church.
