The Challenge

Dear Saints, in this new year we have several areas in the Kingdom that we must discuss and face as individual Parish Churches as well corporately in our communion. During Advent our Lord gave me 5 areas for St. Michael’s in Thomaston, GA to ponder as well as scriptures to meditate on. These questions are to challenge us to put our faith and hope in action as we personally apply them to our lives and Kingdom family. I would encourage each person to ask these questions and read the scriptures for each area.

1.       How am I personally promoting life in the church?

  • Hebrews 10:24-25
  • Colossians 3:16 New International Version (NIV)
  • Ephesians 4:11-13 New International Version (NIV)

2.       How am I promoting Church Growth? Did you know that 85% of all church growth comes from word of mouth?

  • Acts 2:42-47 New International Version (NIV)
  • Matthew 28:19-20 New International Version (NIV)

3.       What is your vision for the church and how are YOU equipping the process to come to pass?

  • James 2:14-26 New International Version (NIV)
  • Matthew 5:16 New International Version (NIV)
  • Titus 1:16 New International Version (NIV)

4.       What is the 3-6-12 month goal for your parish?

       What is the plan to get those complete?

  • Philippians 3:13-14 New International Version (NIV)
  • Deuteronomy 28:1-68 (Blessings and cursing for obedience as well disobedience.)
  • Psalm 33:11 New International Version (NIV)
  • Habakkuk 2:2-3 New International Version (NIV)

5.       Are YOU committed? Only you and your fruit can answer that question.

  • Acts 20:28 New International Version (NIV)
  • 1 Corinthians 1:10 New International Version (NIV)
  • Romans 12:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
  • Haggai 1:2-7 New International Version (NIV)

I challenge each of you to read, meditate and answer these questions. Statistically speaking every church will lose 10 percent of her members each year. That is SAD. Even more sad is a church not being proactive.
