Mission of God’s Church in the World

The true Church of God consists of those whose names are registered in heaven — in the Book of Life. Beyond that, what is its purpose? What is the mission of the Church in today’s world?

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues [languages, as each listener heard the message in his own language, verse 6], as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:1-4).
