Great Commission


Great Commission


Involved in the GREAT COMMISSION

After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to His disciples and gave The Great Commission: "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye, therefore, and disciple all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age."

The Great Commission isn't about "saving souls."  It's about Jesus, his authority and pushing His presence into every square inch of His creation.  Jesus' authority isn't over some spiritual realm or "my heart," but it is over all things, in heaven and in earth.  This authority extends to every subject (biology, economics, physics) and "ology" at the university.  These earthly things are part of the Great Commission.  We believe public preaching is part of fulfilling the Great Commission.

Evangelism


Evangelism


Involved in Evangelism

To fulfill the Great Commission we engage in public preaching.  The Great Commission isn't accomplished by force, but by proclamation and service.  Evangelism is a loaded term, but it is merely the announcement of Good News.  If a war ends, your debts are forgiven, or you are reconciled to an estranged friend or spouse that event is Good News!  It is Good News that Jesus has all authority in heaven and in earth - he is ending war, he is forgiving debt, and has the authority to reconcile us to God.  Open-air preaching is one means of being engaged in the fulfillment of the Great Commission.

Apologetics


Apologetics


Involved in Apologetics

Have you read Plato's "Apology?"  If so, you know it isn't Socrates saying "sorry," but it's his defense before the men of Athens for his beliefs.  The Scriptures say that Christians are to "give a reason (defense/apology) for the hope" that we have in Jesus.  Almost all evangelism in our culture will include answering objections to the authority of Jesus.  To fulfill the Great Commission and our work of evangelism, we seek to provide an apology for the Faith.  

The Whitefield Fellowship is dedicated to the fulfillment of the Great Commission through evangelism and apologetics.
