The role of the church is to spread the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Every believer and every member of this church are given the light so that they can lighten others.” As Matthew 5.14 says, 'You are the light of the world'. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Mar Thoma Church was commissioned with this vision of mission.
