Our chief concern is seeing the LORD as He reveals Himself in His word. We should see Him high and lifted up in a way that humbles us and causes us to worship God for who He is. God Almighty is concerned with Himself first and foremost and we should be too. This attitude should give us the proper focus for our efforts in ministry.
God's people are His children and they need to grow. The word "edify" means to build up. To have continued growth they need spiritual food. We are to always encourage growth and maturity in the faith. Too many ministries keep God's people in a baby stage, sometimes for life, which is very unfortunate.
Apologetics is the defense of the faith. God's people are all called to that. Our website name is GospelDefense.com because we see the vital importance of guarding the precious truth of God's gospel, not just for the sake of His character but also for the health of the church.
Evangelism is an important function of the entire church. It is the declaration of God's gospel as the means for His people to be brought to faith in Christ. None will come to the LORD by faith without the means of His gospel being communicated to the elect.

"The Ministry", What is it?
by Scott Price
For centuries the idea of "ministry" has been misconstrued. What does the word ministry even mean? It means service. "Is that all?", some may ask. Of course there are many aspects to service that are outlined on this page and on this site, but that is basically it. Now, the main thing we should ask ourselves about the ministry is; does it fit with our chief end, which is to glorify God and enjoy Him. That alone is a great topic to take up that many "ministries" are not even clear about.
Many questions flood the mind at this point about ministry or service. Those questions have to do with motive, incentive, salvation, doctrine, theology, knowledge, qualifications, etc.. This one, brief, introduction will not suffice but should rather start one on the path of thinking along the lines of what real ministry is.
Off to the left of the "Our Church" button on our menu are a few articles that will get you started.
