Reasons Churches Thrive

In previous post, I provided reasons a church might die:

REASONS A CHURCH MIGHT DIE

  1. The church is plagued with gospel ignorance or gospel confusion
  2. The church doesn’t view the Bible as authoritative
  3. The church is marked by spiritual immaturity
  4. The church is void of discipleship and disciple makers
  5. The church has an absence of evangelists in the pews 
  6. The church prioritizes personal preferences over gospel priorities and the great commission
  7. The church functions merely as a social club

I now want to provide the opposite list. Here are a few reasons churches thrive. Of course, this list is not exhaustive.

Reasons Churches Thrive

  1. The church radiates with gospel clarity and confronts gospel ignorance and confusion
  2. The church views the Bible as authoritative, sufficient, and effective
  3. The church is marked by spiritual depth and maturity
  4. The church is overflowing with discipleship and disciple makers
  5. The church does not merely rely on church staff but has an abundance of evangelist in the pews
  6. The church prioritizes the great commission and the great commandment over personal preferences
  7. The church functions as a ministry center and a disciple making factory rather than a social club
