This is a post, mainly that i myself remember the calling of the Apostolic tradition of the church. The church should be focused on the mission that God has set forth for us. We don't "have" a mission, but rather the church IS a mission. The gatherings of the church, such as SUnday school and "church", is for the believers to be equipped through teaching and discipling. Once we leave the church we are to be sent forth into the world. The world is our mission field. Our neighbors are our mission, as are our enemies. Church should never be about what "I" can get out of it, but rather it is about being equipped to reach the community and help our fellow believers in the works of grace that are called our lives.
