So many people are looking and living for church growth paradigms. I did. But I have stopped. Church growth is a by-product of something else. But so many push and focus on growth. The early church grew therefor my church must grow. The early church became HEALTHY first … growth came as a result of health.
In Acts 2 when Peter shared the 1st Pentecostal message 3,000 people came to Jesus. Wow! But that was a by-product of 120 people praying and prepping to become what Jesus wanted them to be – a “church without spot or wrinkle” – in other words a healthy church.
Let’s look for church health! Let’s become all that God has designed us to be for His Glory and our benefit!
