Our third purpose is to Serve God in the church and in the world.
Jesus said; "The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life as a ransom for the many" Mark 10:45
We human beings long to have significance, meaning, and purpose to life. We find it when we become obedient and humbly serve the purposes of our loving God. Christians have been given spiritual gifts that are meant to be exercised within the life of the church. At the same time, we, as God's people, are called by God to be part of His Great Commission in the world: "Jesus said; 'All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20). We fulfill that Great Commission when we share our faith with others.
