768 MISSION OF THE CHURCH1 Peter 2, Titus 2, and Matthew 28, NKJV
You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood,
a holy nation, His own special people,
that you may proclaim the praises
of Him who called you out of darkness
into His marvelous light.

For the grace of God that brings salvation
has appeared to all men, teaching us that,
denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we should live soberly, righteously,
and godly in the present age,

looking for the blessed hope and glorious
appearing of our great God and
Savior Jesus Christ,

who gave Himself for us,
that He might redeem us from every lawless deed
and purify for Himself His own special people,
zealous for good works.

"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all things
that I have commanded you;

"and lo, I am with you always,
even to the end of the age." Amen.
