Here's God's Plan on How to Grow Your Church Effectively

When we say "God's plan on growing your church effectively," we mean church growth that pleases God because it goes according to his Word. There are 101 ways to grow a church and even turn it into a mega church.

Question is, is it done the same way Jesus and the apostles in Acts did church in Scriptures? If not, then it cannot please God, no matter if it has millions of members and income. Only Jesus and his ways can please God.

For on (Jesus) God the Father has placed his seal of approval. [John 6.27]
So, here are tips on how to make your church pleasing to God so He'd grow it:
1. Be a church deep and rooted in God's Word. And I don't mean do a lot of bible studies or that members should go to seminary or bible school. Be deep and rooted in the spoken Word of God in the bible.
Man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes out from the mouth (spoken) of God. [Matthew 4]
2. Trash church activities that are purely gimmick (activities Jesus and …

The Great Church Revival We All Have Been Waiting For: What It's All About!

In these end times, God will do a great church revival before Jesus comes back. He will do this to restore all things in these last days:
Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets. [Acts 3.21] And the whole idea is that God will cause the glorious church of Jesus Christ to appear on earth, not as another religion or church denomination, but in the lives of true believers, regardless of church affiliation, who will experience a supernatural touch from God and begin to seriously live out the LIFE of Jesus Christ in the Word of God. 
The glorious church of Jesus Christ will have no physical address or headquarters but will powerfully and radiantly reside in the lives of radical Jesus believers. 
Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. [Isaiah 60].

Jesus' Cross: Still Foolishness and a Stumbling Block to Most People

It seems we recognize the wooden cross more than what it symbolizes. The wooden church is more acceptable in church (it's placed on church buildings and inside altars) than the sufferings of Christ which we are called to:

To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. [1 Peter 2.21] Of course, we're not to have ourselves crucified literally on the cross. Christ already did that to pay for our sins. We don't need to repeat it. But we have to embrace the life of suffering persecution for His Name and for living out his Word daily.
The Jesus cross is also about staying meek and simple, "poor in spirit" and abandoning all forms of worldliness while being in the world. It's about living the holy life of Jesus and stopping feeding the flesh or ego. This Jesus cross is still foolishness to many church people and still serves as a stumbling block. 
The meaning of the Jesus cross is a great hindr…
