Our mission is all about the Glory of Christ. It is not the number of people or the types of programs we offer. Instead we want our eyes fixed on the one person, Jesus Christ! Our church growth strategy is to lift up Christ. For, whenever Christ is lifted up, he will draw all people to himself (Jn 12:32).
The primary way a church is to bring glory to Christ is by spreading his name and honor through disciple-making (Matt. 28:18-20). We want everything we do as a church to fall under the banner of disciple-making. Every meeting we have together as a church should help us make disciples. We want every program or initiative that we start to answer this question: “Will this program help us do a better job at making disciples?”
The task of glorifying Christ by making disciples ends when all nations of the earth have disciples of Jesus Christ.
There are currently 11,291 nations in the world. Of the 11,291 nations there are 6,895 nations where less than 2% of the population is evangelical Christian. Of the 6,985 nations there are 2,987 nations that are not being engaged with the gospel by anyone.
In other words, we have been given a task and it is not finished. This means that we need to redefine what success looks like in the church. We need to judge our success not by our church’s seating capacity, but by our church’s sending capacity.
