Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen The primary verb "teach" or literally rendered "make disciples" defines the objective of this commission. The aorist tense participle translated "go" assumes that the action of going is already completed or "having once gone make disciples." Mark 16:15 demonstrates this completed action in the past is gospel proclamation. Therefore, the act of making disciples is directed toward "them" or those out of "all nations" who have already responded to the gospel in faith - this is the completed action that is assumed completed previous to baptizing and teaching which are present tense participles. However, the command to "make disciples" is a command to reproduce like kind. They are commanded (imperative mode) to make disciples "of Christ" as that is what they are and what Christ has made of them. They are to make disciples who "follow after" or "learners" who embrace or observe "whatsoever things I have commanded you." This is a command to take believers in the gospel of Jesus Christ and disciple them in the same faith and practice of Jesus Christ thus reproducing a disciple of Jesus Christ. The means for doing so is defined and restricted by the three participles "go", "baptizing", "teaching," 1. Go preach the SAME gospel 2. Administer the SAME baptism 3. Teach to observe the SAME faith and practice. To go preach "another" gospel makes them accursed - Gal. 1:8-9 To administer "another" baptism rejects the counsel of God - Lk. 7:29-30 To teach "another" faith and practice is to "depart from the faith" (I Tim. 4:1) once delivered - Jude 3. These SAME particulars are cyclic in succession as the last command to observe all things is inclusive of the first to "go" - thus a natural cycle of reproduction after its own kind. These SAME particulars are cyclic in ORGANIC succession as it is impossible to administer them without HANDS ON contact between administrator and subject. These SAME particulars are cyclic in HISTORIC succession as Christ promises to be with those commissioned to administer these things "always even until the end of the world" or more literaly, "all the days until the end of the age." These SAME particulars are cyclic CHURCH succession as the final aspect is inseparable and inclusive of the New Testament church body as demonstrated in its first post-ascension application in Acts 2:41-42 where "added unto them" is placed between baptism and continuing stedfastly in the apostles doctrine which is equivilent in position between "baptizing" and "teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded" in Matthew 28:19-20. There is not one example in the New Testament where a New Testament church came into existent apart from the existence of a previous "disciple" from another previous existent New Testament church. Moreover, this is exactly what we see produced in the New Testament - New Testament churches of like faith and order.
