How Church Growth Happens at Elevation

July 16th, 2009

We enable experiences and interactions that leave our people saying:
I love my church

So they’ll tell their friends:
You’ve got to come check out my church

The friends come.
We worship Jesus and preach the Gospel with excellence.

The friends leave saying:
I really like this church

Inspiring them to come back again and again until they say:
I love my church

And tell their friends:
You’ve got to come check out my church…

 

How Church Growth Happens in Acts 2

 38Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off–for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

 40With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” 41Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.

 

Notice any differences?

    Yeah, both the churches shown above preach the gospel with excellence.

    Oh, wait, you asked about differences, didn’t you?

    Hmmm, that’s a good one…Furtick made the claim, not me, but since you asked I’ll try to address it in a post shortly.

    The difference is one says come to Jesus and the other says come to my church. You come to Jesus, God.adds you to the church. You don’t join. (See Acts 2 and 3).
