Individual believers are called to love their neighbors (the Great Commandment), which can take on many forms and can also distract the corporate church from her mission.
God has given his people the church to instruct and discipline believers and that church itself ought to be subject to instruction and discipline.
The primary means of evangelism are the preaching of the word, the sacraments, and prayer which lead into a life of grateful service and color the way we raise our children.
God’s command is to make disciples, which is an identity issue at is very core, an necessarily separates us from the world in a very particular way.
Evangelism is the announcement of the kingdom of God (inaugurated through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ) and is made effectual through God’s sovereign use of his ordained means.
