previous article... Law & Gospel   next article... Holy Scripture

We believe, teach and confess that the primary mission of the church is to make disciples of every nation by bearing witness to Jesus Christ through the preaching of the Gospel and the administration of the Sacraments.

Other necessary activities of the church, such as ministering to men's physical needs, are to serve the church's primary mission and its goal that men will believe and confess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

We therefore reject any views of the mission of the church which imply that an adequate or complete witness to Jesus Christ can be made without proclaiming or verbalizing the Gospel.
