The Six Great Ends of the Church can be thought of as a paradigm for vision and priorities for congregations. The core functions of Proclamation, Worship and preservation of the Truth are what make us Church. The Pastor's role lies at the intersection of those three. As we move outward, we first care for each other in fellowship and then for our communities promoting social righteousness. When all five are present, we fulfill the vision of Exhibiting the Kingdom of Heaven to the World.
