To Do What Christ Did: 4 Things

Put it like this: the basic mission of the church is to be the Body of Christ on earth. She does what Christ did, and these are four things: 1. Teach the Truth 2. Heal the Sick 3. Forgive Sins 4. Take authority over evil. The basic mission of the church is therefore to bring Christ’s redemption to a needy world–in other words–to save souls.
