In the last words recorded in Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to His followers, "All authority in heaven and on 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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age". (28:18-20) The divine imperative to “Go and make disciples” has been termed the Great Commission of the church. These words of Jesus contain the assurance of divine authority, the marching orders for all who would be called His disciples, and the promise of His divine presence. Today, more than two thousand years later, this Great Commission remains unfulfilled. While the kingdom of God has undoubtedly had a tremendous advance extending to the remotest parts of the world, the task is still far from complete. Thousands of people groups are yet to be reached. Multitudes have not heard the good news of Jesus Christ’s loving sacrifice for their sins and the opportunity of being brought into right relationship with God. "Great Commission Strategies" - an independent-study textbook for the Global University course by the same name - establishes a biblical theology of the Great Commission. It presents an in-depth study of evangelism and discipleship principles that are universal in their application. Important elements of Great Commission Strategies include the nature of the gospel message, the biblical definition of discipleship, and the methodology of Jesus. Challenges facing the church in multiple ministry contexts are also explored. Finally, the course integrates evangelism and discipleship, presenting them as two sides of a single task. 329 pages
