The Church, which is God’s possession and the body of Christ, exists for the glory of God (I Peter 2:9, 10), the upbuilding of the saints (Eph. 4:11-13), and the proclamation of the gospel to all peoples (Mt. 28-.18-20). It is primarily to this last goal that the missions work of the Church is directed. However, in the proclamation of the gospel the goal is ultimately the glory of God and the upbuilding of God’s elect in all nations.
The primary purpose of missions is the glory of God.
The establishment and upbuilding of the Church is a part of the overall purpose of bringing glory to God.
The proclamation of the gospel and the conversion of the nations are a necessary part of the upbuilding of the Church.
