Fill in the blank: "If Jesus is alive, then..."

If the Gospel is true and Jesus is alive, then the Church is [blank], and missions is [blank]

Can you help me finish this? I'm really interested in your thoughts.
For example: "God's top priority and the biggest movement on earth ... a way for you and me to get involved in this movement on a global scale."
Followup to your comments (below). Sep 26, 2006. Thanks for all of your input: Dave for reminding us that the Church and missions are as connected to Christ as our bodies our connected to us, and that it is all about Him; Laurel for reminding us that missions is not just something far away, but an effort we are all part of (or not part of) no matter where we are; Tomo (age 10?) for drawing the connection between the Church and Heaven (those who love Jesus will be there!); Carn for pointing out that the Church is needed (and you know what, Carn? Missions is critically needed as well, because "how can they [people who don't know Jesus in other countries] hear without someone preaching to them?"); and, finally, Ted for, in your own wry way, challenging us to not slip into the deadly mindset of viewing Church (and the Church) as another slice in the pie of a comfortable life, and missions as an opportunity to have others pay for a purpose-driven holiday to the Caribbean. ;) Indeed, if Jesus is alive--and He is--then we need *every moment* of our short lives to count for Him. The best way to do that is to pray and obey.
