On this podcast, we begin a new series on the church. People attend church, are married at a church, and many are buried at a church. But, what is the church? This series seeks to answer that question from a biblical perspective. For the first message, we explore the mission of the church. Jesus gave what is popularly called the Great Commission in Matthew 28:16-20. Jesus was standing before a plethora of his disciples in Galilee after his resurrection. His teachings denote the mission of the church. Join us today as we discuss the mission of the church.
