The purpose of our Church is to worship publicly our wonderful Lord, to preach and teach the Word of God, to lead the lost and sinning person to Jesus Christ, who is “the way and the truth and the life,” and the only way to salvation, and to offer Christian company, love, encouragement and growth in the Christian faith.
The aim of the Church of Christ is to go into the entire world and to preach the gospel to all creation (Mark 16: 15). The call of the gospel, then, is an invitation for every soul to come to Christ. It is the call that Christ Himself made inviting people to come near Him: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11: 28).
This call from Christ conceals within itself all of the mercy, all of the love, all of the forgiveness and grace of God, because it is addressed to people who are weary and burdened, discouraged and afraid. This invitation is addressed to sinners who He calls neither to punishment nor defense, but to repentance for their sins, to faith in Christ Himself, to salvation, to rest, to forgiveness, to real life.
This heavenly and divine call is addressed to all. The response, which God awaits to this call, is that we personally go to Christ, because only Christ saves. He is the One who died for our sins, and was resurrected for our justification (Romans 4: 25). The aim of the Church is to show the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. In the Holy Bible we read, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by whom we must be saved.” (Acts 4: 12)
