The Church is a kingly priesthood and we are to represent Christ wherever we are, in whatever endeavours.
As prophets we are to work out and apply the Word of God to the world around us, exalting Christ's righteousness.
We want to be our own gods, create our own reality and control it, as seen in pornography, reality TV, cyberspace social networks, positive thinking, fiat money, and salvation by technology.
The announcement we make in evangelism is that the salvation and reign of Christ has broken into history.
In Ephesians 4, the office of teacher is given to equip the saints for the work of ministry that they might grow to maturity.
Fighting the wolf is the pastor's duty; we need to confront the influences that would destroy God's people.
The apostolic calling for the church today is that we are being sent by God into the world to accomplish His purposes. God has privileged His people to do His work. If we are an apostolic church, we're to have the face of an angel, ministering and serving one another. The gospel brings the light of forgiveness of sins, and it also changes hearts and so it changes social orders. The gospel has made conquest of individuals and nations; it has given life to dead churches; it has revolutionized continents. It liberates captives.
