The church's purpose

My church's purpose statement is:
The Overriding Purpose Of The Altona EMM Church Is To Glorify God By Extending The Kingdom Of Jesus Christ Through Discipleship, Evangelism, Worship And Fellowship.
There are two foundational concepts in this statement and one underlining assumption.
The foundational statements:
  1. We exist to glorify God
  2. We glorify God by extending the kingdom of Jesus Christ
The underlining assumption is that this is done by church, a community, not simply as individuals.

Interesting video. My favorite line is when Dallas defines the gospel as being about "getting into heaven before we die."
