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

centerod.com
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 Acts apostles never did). They look good but actually only lure church people away from things that really count to God, like being deep in the Word and the Holy Spirit and sharing the Gospel to non-believers.

3. Keep things simple. Focus on having the LIFE, character, power and ministry of Jesus Christ, no more no less.

The e-book, "Leaving the Land of Slavery" (188 pages) discusses a lot on the basic spiritual principles that help a church get out of a spiritually dying condition. 

The e-book helps you:
  • Diagnose your true spiritual health condition. 
  • Identify the real causes of a dying church.
  • Identify how Satan can gain access and actually work inside the church.
  • How church work can sometimes actually go against God's Will.
  • How church can sometimes help Satan go against God's plans without knowing it.
  • See powerful principles that can remedy all the church problems above.
  • See how your church can be part of Jesus' glorious church (without spot or wrinkle or any blemish) in these last days.

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].

Failed Church Revivals

Churches have been trying to come up with the right revival formula for years, to no avail. The most they have come up with are small sparks that burn for a while and then easily extinguished by the flesh. The problem with these short-lived revivals is that, they were mostly stirred by human effort.

Some of them were initiated by God, but man's propensity to control God's moves and claiming ownership for them led the moves to their natural deaths. In effect, God later released his hold on the supernatural event and let man manage the affair he grabbed from God, watching man fail.

But the last great church revival will be different. It will be sudden, without any plans and programs by man. It will be led by the Holy Spirit alone.

Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come," says the LORD Almighty. [Malachi 3]

A Church Revival We Haven't Seen or Heard of Before

People in the streets, offices, schools, homes and public and private vehicles will just become aware of the Lord's awesome Presence and seriously repent of sins and kneel down, beating their breasts in true repentance and seeking the Lord. They will beg believers to lead them to Christ.

No one can claim the glory--it will happen without anyone preaching and definitely not inside church buildings. 

But of course, stubborn sinners will not be moved by this supernatural revival and go on being worse. But there will be a great number of those who will be saved.

But for the glorious church of Jesus to appear in our midst--and to be part of it--there are certain spiritual principles we should know to make sure we have been freed by the Son indeed. Sadly, there are believers who still live in the land of spiritual slavery, building "church ministries" for the enemies of God.

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

runluaurun.com
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 hindrance if you're after the world's recognition, standards, and ways. Today, you see a lot of the world's systems in church because these systems put the church on the map. They want to be mega churches to be respected by the world, and to be that they have to bow down to the world's wishes.

We preach Christ crucified [1 Corinthians 1.23]--preaching not just the Gospel that saves but also the Jesus LIFE that radically does away with anything appreciated by the world.

And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see him with my own eyes—I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me! [Job 19,26-17]
