Christians in the past summarized the purpose of human existence saying, “Man’s chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.” While this is the ultimate reason for which God made all human beings, the unique mission with which Jesus has charged the church is to “make disciples” (Matt. 28:16-20). By definition, a disciple is a follower of another, one who imitates the life and faith of the one they follow.
As a church, our purpose is to make disciples of Jesus who will in turn fulfill their chief end of glorifying and enjoying God. The result of men, women and children becoming and growing as mature and equipped followers of Christ is transformation, both personally (2 Cor. 5:17) and at every level of society (Col. 1:19).
