Jesus ran a mini-church. After three years of Mission all He had to show for it was about 120 people. In the world’s eyes His Church Planting efforts were a failure. In the eyes of heaven, however, it was not about the number of disciples, it was really about the quality of His disciples. By 65 A.D. this small group of 120 had grown to 25,000 disciples and only about 150 years later in 300 A.D. this mini-church had grown to over 20 million believers!
The Mission of the Church is found in Matthew 28:18-20 where Jesus says, “Go, therefore into all the earth and …make disciples.” Jesus doesn’t ever tell us make converts. The Mission is to make disciples. If you and I take this command seriously, we could transform the entire community of Santa Barbara in ten years or less.
Men, it’s time to RECLAIM our true mission and to make disciples of all men. Join us as we continue our Destiny Series and take re-occupy the territory of men’s hearts.
