In Matthew 28 we read the words of the great commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.”

For generations, these words have compelled many within the church to participate in the work of evangelism and missions all around the world; but the great commission is about more than conversion, it also calls for the building up of the believer, what we often identify today as “discipleship.”

This piece features: Dr. Peter Mead, Dr. Erwin Lutzer and Dr. K. Edward Copeland.
