Growing A Healthy Church


The Local Church is the Hope of the World

We believe that the local church is the hope of the world. Jesus said in Matthew 6:18, "I will build My church and the gates of Hades will not overpower it."

The local church is God's church. It’s His vessel to reach the world, and we believe it should be one of the most effective, exciting, and healthy organizations on the planet. In Acts, throughout the birth and the expansion of the church, we see such Godly passion in leadership, readiness to preach the gospel, powerful unity among all those involved, empowerment by the Holy Spirit, and effectiveness in reaching more people for Christ.

We are the ongoing story of the Church as we continue to go "to the ends of the earth." We should be passionate about our churches being healthy and growing.

As you read God’s Word, be reminded and encouraged by the power and momentum of God’s Church. May we settle for nothing less than healthy churches!
