Why We Exist

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted.

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.”

- Matthew 28:16-20, English Standard Version

Frankly, I know what you are thinking as you see that sermon text and title listed there: “Another sermon on the Great Commission? Even I know that text.” But do you? We all need a refresher on the last earthly command from the King of the universe: Make Disciples.

It is why you are here.
