Why Does the Church Exist?

Greg VanderMeer: Fair Haven Church
Followers of Jesus need to know the answer to this question.

Following Jesus

Following Jesus is the greatest joy in life. Discipleship is all about following Jesus. Disciplemaking is all about helping others to follow Jesus — and helping others to help others to follow Jesus. Discipleship and Disciplemaking go hand in hand.

The Church on Mission

When the church is in mission, it is the true church. The church itself is not only a product of that mission but is obligated and destined to extend it by whatever means possible. The mission of God flows directly through every believer and every community of faith that adheres to Jesus. To obstruct this is to block God’s purposes in and through his people.

What is the Essence of the Church?

The essence of any local church is seen as being the people of God on mission. God has sent His people to complete His mission by making disciples who make disciples!

Instead of attracting people to church, local churches have a responsibility to equip every believer as missionaries in their neighborhoods and workplaces! The problem in many churches is that “consumer Christians” are coming on Sundays to receive the goods and services that the staff offers them.
