Go and Make Disciples of All Nations
Table of Contents
The redemption of all nations was part of God’s salvation plan from the beginning of the ages (Eph 3:5–9). From of old, God had revealed to Abraham that he would become father of many nations, and all the nations of the earth would be blessed in him (Gen 12:2; 17:4–6; 18:18). Indeed, it was through Abraham’s Seed—Jesus Christ—that salvation was given to all nations (Gen 22:18; Acts 3:25b; Gal 3:8, 14, 16).
After accomplishing the work of salvation, through His death and resurrection, Jesus commissioned His apostles with an important task:
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them…” (Mt 28:19a)
As the revived apostolic church in the end times, the True Jesus Church has inherited this commission, and will see it fully realized:
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” (Mt 24:14)
