Discover and Become Everything God has Created You to Be!
One time when I was serving on staff at a church, I remember hearing a member of the church say that he didn't believe that God wanted our church to grow. Now I know that there are seasons where God will focus on developing a church more spiritually than numerically, but I have to believe that healthy things grow and change. If this is true, then it must be true for churches as well. Healthy children, plants, and trees all grow – so why wouldn't a healthy church grow?
We must believe in our minds that God wants us reaching more people in our community - impacting more lives and rescuing more people from hell and into Heaven. Having multiple services is a great way to do this. I don’t think we can believe any longer that church is only done on Sunday mornings. With people working multiple jobs and multiple shifts nowadays, I feel it is the loving and compassionate thing to do to offer more times and opportunities for people to hear God’s Word, enjoy His presence, and fellowship with other believers.
Let’s believe that God wants churches to grow because He wants Heaven to grow! He said He wanted His banquet table to be filled with people. When we talk about church growth, the aim is not simply adding more numbers to the seats of our churches, but rather it’s about adding more souls to God’s banqueting table in Heaven.
