This last command of Christ should for us who are born again believers, for us who are saved, should be our highest priority. Every facet of church activity should in some way relate to what Christ said because this is the purpose of the church.
The story is told of a man named John Currier who was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison. After his sentencing the judge paroled him to work on a farm near Nashville, Tennessee.
At Maluhia Baptist Church, we have emphasized this purpose of Christ in the Great Commission into our three-point mission statement. We will use these three points to help us stay focused on the purpose of the church and to help us do what we as Christians need to do.
aWithout this first purpose of loving God all this church would be is a club. Growing closer together and reaching other people and asking to join our club.
The story of Maluhia Baptist Church all started with a love for God.

Introduction:
Ten years passed until a state parole officer noitced John was still on the farm. Puzzled why John was still there this state parole officer found John, and personally told him that his sentence had been terminated 10 years ago and that he is free to go. John Currier could have been freed ten years earlier, but sadly and simply no one told him. Its a shame that this officer was the only one who personally told this man the truth and gave him the Good News of his freedom.

Text: Deut 6:5
For us as Christians, sharing the truth is mainly us personally giving unsaved people the Gospel. We all meet unsaved people each and every day, but all to often we neglect to share the Good News with them. The truth about their freedom. Sharing God's simple plan of salvation with them. Too often our busy schedule, pride, or fear hinders our witness. God will help us overcome these obstacles and give us boldness to share the truth if we will listen for Him, obey Him, and go.

Satan wants to keep people locked in the prison of sin, but we as Christians hold the key, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which will set them free forever. Let’s boldly proclaim the truth to everyone we meet in our lives.

How this all Started.
From the Bible, what is the Purpose of the Church?
How do we at Maluhia plan to stay focused on accomplishing this purpose.
Proposition: But the question is will we personally go to them and share with them the truth? Will we get over our busy schedules, our pride, our fear things that hinder us from witnessing to them and share with them truth. The Greatest News they could ever recieve, the Good News of the Gospel.

The purpose of the church and the Purpose of Maluhia Baptist Church is summed up in the commission, known as the Great Commission, Christ gave His disciples just before He ascended to Heaven. JEsus said in “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen” ().
This last command of Christ should for us who are born again believers, for us who are saved, should be our highest priority. Every facet of church activity should in some way relate to what Christ said because this is the purpose of the church.
At Maluhia Baptist Church, we have emphasized this purpose of Christ in the Great Commission into our three-point mission statement. We will use these three points to help us stay focused on the purpose of the church and to help us do what we as Christians need to do.
