God’s Growth DNA
The Bible and Spirit of Prophecy outline five key principles that fuel church growth:
- REFLECT: Review the record of God’s church growth movements in the past so we can learn how to grow successfully today.
- EMPOWER: Pass along the torch of leadership from person to person and generation to generation.
- NURTURE: Help believers become true followers of the Lord through prayer, Bible study, and the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
- EVANGELIZE: Preach the Word of God in the community through public sowing and reaping events.
- WITNESS: Equip each member to share their faith by building meaningful, eternal friendships.
In “recognition of their co-operation with His purpose, [God] was renewing His covenant that His Spirit should remain among them.”
