The three principal reasons for our existence as a church are to:
(1) exalt the Lord (Romans 15:5-6; 1 Corinthians 10:31);
(2) edify the saints (Ephesians 4:11-16); and
(3) evangelize the world (Matthew 28:19-20).
We are to grow up into Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by that which every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. -Ephesians 4:16
