2. Strong Bible Teaching!

Preach the Word! "I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching." (2 Timothy 4:1-2, NKJV)

Fearful or afraid to preach unique positions with Bible behind it?

There are different types of churches based make, what kind of ministry they do, and where they are located. These differences affect how they grow.

Different models exist for growing churches. One model focuses on attracting new people into the church while another focuses on retaining existing members. A third model focuses on both. Each model has its own strengths and weaknesses.

Zechariah 4:6 Then he answered and said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.

We'll also look at some of the most common mistakes churches make when it comes to growing their membership.

Churches often struggle with growing their congregations. They try new things, but they rarely see results. 

Healthy teaching means sound doctrine applied to your life. 2 Timothy 1:13.

Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

Focus on Quality over Quantity.

You need to focus on quality over quantity when trying to grow your congregation. This means that you shouldn't just add more people to your church. Instead, you should make sure that every member of your church be salved

3. Be Transparent about Your Values.

“My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.”

II Timothy 2:15

Church growth is impeded through a failure to listen to God's word

Matt. 22:23-33; I Peter 3:13-16a; John 5:39; Col. 1:3-10

  • They had grown in faith.
  • They had grown in love for the saints.
  • They had grown in hope.

Preacher’s Responsibility

  • Preach the Word (2 Tim. 4:2)
  • Preach To Please God (1 Thess. 2:4)
  • Preach The Whole Counsel (Acts 20:27)
  • Preach The Truth In Love (Eph. 4:15)

Transparency is one of the key values of any organization. It's also one of the keys to building trust between members of an organization.

4. Build Relationships with People Who Are Already Members.

Greet visitors and ask questions, but don’t pry. Get involved with projects like: Visitor info. cards, greeting at the door, gospel meeting fliers, directory, etc.

Prepare yourself to have a Bible study!

Have someone over for a meal. Invite people to come to services.

Don’t oppose ideas that might be related to growth just because…

If you're trying to build relationships with new members, start by building relationships with current members. It's much easier to gain trust from existing members than it is to gain trust from potential new members.
