How Not to Measure Church Growth

Updated on December 21, 2016
  • Church growth is not measured in how many people you can get to sit in the service on Sunday morning but how many people stand in service throughout the week.
  • Church growth is not measured by how many people come to church on Christmas and Easter but on how many come to church on the day of a big sports game.
  • Church growth is not measured by how many people will sit through a message but by the people who walk out and live the message.
  • Church growth is not measured by how many church activities a church has that teach about Jesus but by how many times church members proclaim Jesus outside the church each week.
  • Church growth is not measured by how many sermons the pastor preaches but by how many men the pastor raises up to preach.
  • A church grows not by having a building but by being a body.
  • A church grows not by how much they listen to the pastor preach the Word but by opening the Word and reading it themselves.
  • A churches job isn't done when the building is full but when the streets are empty.
