Acts 16:5– So the churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.
1. IT IS GOD’S WILL FOR MY CHURCH TO GROW.
– God never intended you to stay where you are.
-When you get healthy, growth will happen.
-The reason why it’s important is because Heaven is Hell is real.
2. MY GROWTH POTENTIAL IS DIFFERENT THAN YOURS.
we all have a different assignment from God.
3. ALL OF US CAN GET BETTER.
If you get better, it’ll get bigger.
You can’t just aim at anything.
You have to aim at the right thing.
Lost people saved.
Saved people pastored.
Pastored people trained.
Trained people are mobilized.
Four places this is revealed in God’s Word.
2. Mark 16:15-20
3. Colossians 1:28-29
4. Ephesians 1:16-18 (Message translation is awesome)
Making the path so clear.
They got it clear.
Four things on everything.
1. Know God
How do we deliver that: system: Weekend Services. (Delivers the “know God” vision)
Key- narrow the focus (know God)
2. Find Freedom
System: small groups
Key: all ministry and events with groups.
3. Discover Purpose
Each of us have different gifts.
Everything you need to accomplish your goal is already in your church.
System: Growth Track
Key: think steps not events.
4. Make a Difference
1 Peter 4:10 NLT
System: Dream Team
No one can fulfill their purpose alone.
Key: gift- oriented ministry
THINK STEPS NOT EVENTS
What is a system- something that delivers the vision.
Success is when people are moving on the Spiritual journey that God has for them.
