A. Goal and Considerations

Goal — Bible

11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

Ephesians 4:11-16, NKJV

Goal — Spirit of Prophecy

1) “The church is God's appointed agency for the salvation of men. 2) It was organized for service, and 3) its mission is to carry the gospel to the world. 4) From the beginning it has been God's plan that through His church shall be reflected to the world His fullness and His sufficiency. 5) The members of the church, those whom He has called out of darkness into His marvelous light, are to show forth His glory. 6) The church is the repository of the riches of the grace of Christ; and 7) through the church will eventually be made manifest, even to "the principalities and powers in heavenly places," the final and full display of the love of God. Ephesians 3:10.”

Acts of the Apostles, p. 9
