Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV) reads:
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20 1599 (GNV) reads:
Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them [b]in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the holy Ghost,
Teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you alway, until the end of the world, Amen.

Matthew 28:19-20 (MSG) reads:
Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.

I wanted to provide 3 versions of “The Great Commission” as nowhere does it say argue with people to lead them to an understand of the Gospel. Or threaten them with fire & brimstone. Or make them go to a church building, or they are going to hell. Or put a fish on your car, half dozen cross around your neck, have your hair cut above your ears, buy expensive suits and ties and show off your wealth to lead them to the Gospel. Or be in a church building Sunday morning, Sunday evening, Wednesday night, Thursday visitation, Saturday Group…

However it does say GO, teach, train, instruct, baptize them in the name of the Trinity; and that Jesus will be with you always. Granted some of that will be gathering together to learn, grow, and be recharge. As well as to allow willful giving to help finance learning, serving and funds for giving to others in need. As well as much of the message you may send out, is the way you conduct yourself as each of us may be the only message of Christ and The Gospel someone may see.
