Ministries of the Church:

How many ministries does your church have? Does it have these five basic foundational ministries? When it really comes down to it, what are the basics? Here they are:

  1. The church worships the triune God (Col 3:17, 1 Cor 10:31)
  2. The church proclaims the Word of God (Rom 10:14-15, 2 Tim 3:16-4:4)
  3. The church engages non-Christians (Mt 28:18-20, John 20:21)
  4. The church disciples its members (Mt 28:18-20)
  5. The church cares for its people (Gal 6:9-10, Acts 2:44-45, 2 Cor 8 & 9)

This is the 3rd post in a series titled “What is the Church?” View Part 1 including a definition of the Church. Or Part 2 on the 8 essentials of the Church.

For more on “What is the Church,” there is a great series of posts on the Resurgence by a prof I had in Re:Train, Dr. Gregg Allison, titled “Missional Ecclesiology.” To learn more, visit the blog series at theResurgence.com.
