Just like a plant that is not growing is dying, so a church that is not growing is dying.
Church growth should not only be from within the church growing beleivers but outside the
church winning the lost to Christ. As those in need of the Savior are brought to him, the
natural outgrowth is the planting of other churches.
How can I help?
How can my church help?Just as a healthy plant reproduces itself, so a healthy church plants new churches. Sometimes those churches are planted through missionaries in foreign fields, other times they are planted near an existing church that can support and nurture the new ministry. Your church can be part of this by explicitly supporting a church planting effort. This can be done either through a one time offering that can help pay for startup costs, or through scheduled contributions that can provide time for the church to become self-supporting.
What if my church is closed or is about to close?
An organization that increases in size can do so through Biblical or Unbiblical means, but a church not growing is dying. If your church has not followed the great commissision to reach the lost and is either closed or about to close, there is hope. The property and existing infrastructure can be used to plant a new vibrant, Biblical church that will reach the community. Please call to discuss the situation and how the power of the gospel can change lives.
