Evangelism Ministry 

The Church exists to advance the Kingdom. Notice the progressive nature of the language Jesus used in Matthew 16. He said he was going to “build” His church (v.18). He built it and He’s been expanding it ever since. Members of the body take part in doing so. The appropriate analogy often used is, we are the containers and Christ is the content. As the containers (body), Christ has indwelled us (content), that He may use us to build His Church. Tukwila Church of Christ has undertaken the mission of Christ to build up the Church through a three step approach.

Knowing: Training and equipping of members is paramount to the success of the church. “…Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man…” Ephesians 4:13

Going: The aim of the ministry of Christian service is for Christians to do the work of ministry for the edifying of the body of Christ, that is to build up the church numerically and spiritually. The edifying of the church is to continue till we all come in the unity of the faith, that is until all Christians attain spiritual maturity. Since new believers are constantly being added to the church, this objective will not be complete until the Lord returns. “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” Ephesians 4:12

Growing: Two results occur when Christians reach spiritual maturity. (1) Thankfully they will no longer be children, that is, immature believers easily deceived by every wind of doctrine. (2) Finally, they will grow up into him, that is full grown in all aspects of Christian living—doctrine, conduct, service, and so on. “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.” Ephesians 4:15

THE CHURCH IS A BODY MINISTRY!  Everybody has a part to play in the body: When the whole body functions great exciting things happen. "From the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, ....working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself ..." Ephesians 4:16
