You’ve found a church you enjoy attending. It’s feeding you spiritually, and the pastor shows you he does care about his congregation. The only thing you’re struggling with is the fact that this is a small church. You wish there were more people in attendance.
Did you know that it’s up to you to help your church grow?
There are several reasons why you need to help your church grow. Let’s take a moment to consider these reasons for ourselves:
You may think that all of this is easy enough, but some churches still don’t grow. Churches like this should take a look around and check out what’s happening. Once you see what the issue is, you should be able to help your church grow. These issues include:
Once you’ve taken some time to pray about what your church should and shouldn’t be like, it’s time to help your church grow by putting your spiritual gifts to work on its behalf. After all, it’s your spiritual gifts that help you find purpose in the body of Christ.
The Holy Spirit gives every Christian spiritual gifts. These gifts are what make you a unique and vital part of Christ’s body. They aren’t natural talents, fruits of the Spirit, or roles.
Discovering your spiritual gifts is an essential part of Christian growth. It starts with being a Christian who believes in spiritual gifts. If this describes your heart, take some time to read the Bible, pray, and talk to other Christians about what gifts they see in you. You must then be willing to do the necessary work to develop your spiritual gifts as God leads.
Once you better understand what spiritual gifts you have, you’ll want to start using them to help your church grow. By doing so, you’ll not only grow deeper in Christ, but you’ll also see why you do matter to your church’s growth.
