Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus commands us to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you." This requires our time and financial resources. Some have one or the other and many have both. Generosity in the giving of both time and financial resources will be required for our church to be most effective in following this command.
