I noticed in your mission statement that you say, “The mission and commission of the Church is to follow the Apostle Paul and the revelation of the truth, which our Lord Jesus Christ in glory gave to him for us.” Are you saying that this does not include the Old Testament and the rest of the New Testament teachings? I only ask this because there are other writers of the New Testament too.
Thanks for your question. All scripture is for us (II Timothy 3:16,17), but not all scripture is to us. We are the church which is his body (Ephesians 1:22,23). God’s purpose for the Body of Christ is different than his purpose for the Nation of Israel. God’s purpose and instructions for us is found in Paul’s epistles (Ephesians 3:1-11 & Romans 11:13). For instance in the four gospels the gospel is called “the gospel of the kingdom.” This was the good news that the promised Kingdom was at hand because the Son of David, the King was here. In Matthew 10 the 12 were sent out to preach, but Matthew 16:21,22 is the first time the Lord told them he was going to die and rise again. They never knew this. This is why Peter mistakenly rebuked the Lord. Our gospel is the good news of the cross (I Corinthians 1:18-24 & 15:1-4). And that difference is just for starters.
