The Great Commission
Win Souls/ Make Disciples

The Great Commission!!
What is it and what does it have to do with me?

The command given to the first century disciples by Jesus and passed on to us as believers, can be found in two parts.

The first part is found in Mark 16:15-20

"Go into all the world and preach the Gospel."

Jesus' instruction to us is to go and share the Good News about Him with everyone that we meet. The first step in being successful at carrying out God's instructions to us is to engage ourselves in the exercise of Evangelism. Go to "What is Evangelism?" for a more in depth study.

The second part of Jesus' command to us can be found in
Matthew 28:18-20

"Go and teach or make disciples of all nations..."

Jesus tells them that in addition to sharing the Gospel and leading people into an understanding of who He is, it is also their responsibility to "make disciples."

This process is a little more time intensive. It means investing yourself in the life of another human being in order to help them understand how to follow after Jesus and obey His teachings. Go to "Discipleship" for a more in depth study.

The marriage of the two parts of Jesus' instructions to His followers has been passed down to us through the Scriptures and the writings of the first century church.

It is important to understand that it is the responsibility of each and every Christian to help carry out this wonderful plan for saving souls and making disciples.
