The Mission of the School of Christ

"Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."   Mark 16:15

The Goal of the School of Christ

Jesus said, "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15) This one verse sets forth the ultimate goal of the School of Christ, but the constituents of meeting this goal, of attaining what with the natural mind is impossible, are many.

The Constituents

  1. The manifested life of Christ
  2. Living the life of another
  3. An effective plan of reaching every creature
  4. Cooperation and assistance of the body of Christ
  5. An outpouring of Pentecost upon the students that through them the Holy Ghost may life the life of Jesus

The Manifested Life of Christ

The School of Christ is about life. Though knowledge and doctrine are included in our learning, these are nothing without the manifest life of Christ in the believer. The school proceeds from the principal that the creature is here to contain and manifest the Creator.

T. Austin Sparks wrote, "The Lord Jesus did not say, I give you a volume of teaching to feed upon." He said, "I am the bread of life." Before we can profit by the bread, we must know and have a vital relationship between the feeder and the food. A natural intellectual acquisition of knowledge of the Bible is no substitute for spiritual food. The disciple must become a manifestation of what he learns.

The aim of the School of Christ is not to send the disciples forth with a notebook full of notes, but rather to send them forth pregnant with the Life of God. No student can graduate without being filled with the Holy Ghost. We have witnessed hundreds of times over. As these students go forth into the cities and villages where God has called them, and continue in the discipline of prayer and the Word of God, they will birth this life and a church is born. Life comes to that community.
