Our goal is to glorify God!
God is passionately committed to His fame and His ultimate goal is that His name be known and praised by all peoples of the earth.
… to distant islands that have not heard of my fame or seen my glory. They will proclaim my glory among the nations.Isaiah 66:19
We do this by making disciples.
A disciple is a follower of Jesus. God desires us to be more and more like Jesus. Matt 28:18-20 For CFC, making disciples is an intentional, relational involvement with people that is passed on from person to person.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.Matt 28:18-20
We engage all people!
Our task is both local and global. Rev 5:9 is a picture of the future and how Christ’s death relates to our mission.
And they sang a new song: You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, because You were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation…Rev 5:9
