All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. —Jesus
THE POWER OF ALL
The word “all” may seem daunting—that is, until you consider the other “alls” Jesus mentions in Matthew 28:18–20: And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you all-ways, to the end of the age”.

ALL THAT I HAVE COMMANDED YOU
Everything we need to remain rooted in His great love and guided in His sacred mission
ALL-WAYS WITH YOU
His Spirit’s abiding 24/7 power and presence
With this Great Commission, we share the DUAL PRIVILEGE of living in the age Jesus ushered in when He departed earthly soil. First and foremost, we have received the priceless gospel. From the mouths of the original sent ones to the ears of those who heard and repeated it over the centuries, we have become recipients of the treasured invitation into the heart of Father through the sacrifice of His Son. Second, we share the enormous privilege of carrying this invitation to the remaining half of our world that has yet to receive it.
