TITLE; THE GREAT MISSION

INTRO: This passage is about the great mission. It is a great commission which Jesus Christ
commissioned to his disciples ‘go into all world’ when you read this passage it sounds like not
an option but we have to go out! To go and witness about Jesus Christ to all nations.

Outline:

I. THE GREAT COMMISSION AS THE MISSION
 Jesus emphasized on evangelism (Act 1:8)
 The church should go out and do evangelism to all people
 This mission is not an option. As long as you have believed in Jesus Christ,
you have to ‘Go’
APP: I have to ask myself, what is the reason for my ministry? The reason for
my ministry should be ‘to evangelize.’ I am at Chongshin to be a good witness
of Jesus Christ as my Lord.
II. THE GREAT MISSION AS THE MISSION OF WINNING SOULS
 The reason why we have to evangelize is that we need to win the soul of
unbelievers
 There are many people around the world who know nothing about Jesus
Christ.
 Winning soul is our target in the ministry.
III. CONCLUSION
 We as pastors we need to teach all believers to be evangelist!
 Challenge to the Korean church should go to other nations to preach Jesus
Christ
