“Everything we do in the church has to be planned with the gospel at the center. If you have a bake sale, invite non-Christians to bake and to come. If you take kids to the beach, teach your kids how to witness to other surfers and swimmers and invite non-Christians to come along. This concept is sometimes called the missional church, where missions and evangelism are not just activities of the church or departments of the church but everything is focused on the advance of the gospel…what goes on in the missional church? Basically three things: worship, nurture, and witness.” John Frame, Salvation Belongs to the Lord

EVERYTHING IS FOCUSED ON THE ADVANCE OF THE GOSPEL. Seems like a simple enough concept to me…
