The Chief Mission of the Church

From Richard Baxter’s 1656 classic The Reformed Pastor:

“We are seeking to uphold the world, to save it from the curse of God, to perfect the creation, to attain the ends of Christ’s death, to save ourselves and others from damnation, to overcome the devil, and demolish his kingdom, to set up the kingdom of Christ, and to attain and help others to the kingdom of glory.”

What a great mission statement!
