We are a God-sensitive and seeker-friendly church in an environment and atmosphere where people’s needs are constantly being met,
their minds empowered through the provision of relevant information and sustainable inspiration,
their spirits fed, and men and women are stirred up into action with passion towards the fulfillment of their God-ordained destinies.
The topic of our deliberation today is, Building Strong Churches. There are of course as many approaches to the topic as there are definitions of what a strong church is. A church can be administratively strong. A church can be spiritually strong. A church can be membership strong. A church can be pastorally strong. There are so many ways in which a church can be strong. But whatever definition of strength we choose we must avoid a trade union or insular definition.
A trade union definition of strength is how a pastors’ collective will define strength, and it’s irrespective of how everyone else defines it. It’s how churches get into comparative analyses, comparing themselves to themselves. But the Bible says those who compare themselves to themselves are not wise. 2 Corinthians 10:12. We must therefore avoid a foolish definition of strength.
