Our church purpose extends far beyond our city and our nation's borders. Jesus commanded his disciples to "make disciples of all nations" (Matt 28:20). He has given us the authority and the commission to take the gospel to all nations so that heaven is filled people of every tribe and people and langauge and nations (Rev 5:9).
