In the book of Acts, at the end of the second chapter, we see what life in the early church was like. From this text we can draw at least 5 of the major purposes of the Church. The Bible tells us to be united in purpose, therefore we need to understand what the purposes of the church are. The five main purposes of the church are worship, discipleship, evangelism, fellowship and ministry. At Return we aim to fulfill all five purposes. In this lesson we review all five, but today we put some emphasis on evangelism. We must be a church that is friendly and welcoming to all strangers, visitors. Jesus said when you have done it to the least of these you have done it unto me. (feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, welcoming and taking in the stranger and visiting those in prison). To think that every Christian does not have a responsibility to share Jesus with others is the height of deception. He loves us, so we can love Him and share His love with others.
