The commandments and covenants in the Bible are important in Christian ministry. Defining these aspects may cultivate Christian organizations such as Christian citizenship and Christian organization is vital in addressing the fabric of designing a loving and ethical culture built on the commandments and covenants. This includes love God, love one’s neighbor, or love one another. Designing a strong and integrity driven culture and showing how love should be put in operation in the church such as how a Christian leader views the actions and policies of the church. In return, this can create a love God design for churches that is based on the great commandment. This thesis will introduce multiple perspectives and conflicts in Christian ministry in defining and attempting to discover the key elements of becoming and maintaining the commandments and covenants in the modern-day church.
