To what degree Jake and Elwood Blues were "on a mission from God" is suspect, but there is no question that the Body of Christ, composed of every Christian on earth, is on a mission from God. What is that mission, as defined by God and Christ, and how do we carry it out? This teaching elaborates upon two general "mission statements" given us by Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul, and three more specific ones from the same source, as found in Paul's epistles. We will see how those three correspond to the essential doctrines of the Christian faith and to the triumvirate of faith, hope, and love. Has the Christian Church successfully carried out its mission, or has Satan so distorted its understanding of these critical doctrines to the degree that the vast majority of people on earth have yet to hear the Good News in its purest form? Tune in and find out.
