Love at the Center

goodlife guide

by Mark McNees

The problem this dissertation seeks to address is that many American churches in today’s emerging culture have failed to fulfill the great commission because of their lack of commitment to the Most Important Commandment (MIC)(Mark 12:28-31) as a method for fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). The thesis of this paper is that a holistic integrated approach to keeping the Great Commission can be developed by first embracing the ethic of the MIC. American churches in emerging culture that develop a ministry philosophy primarily driven by the MIC are better suited to effectively carry out the Great Commission. Moreover, when Christians make living out the MIC the primary focus of their lives, they will experience the abundant life Jesus promised and a more loving impact on the world for Christ (John 10:10, John 17:13).
