“Not to us, LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory.” Psalm 115:1

What does good church growth look like?

growthWhat does good church growth look like? This is a really tough thing to measure. It is certainly encouraging to see a full sanctuary of people singing heartily, maybe even giving in the offering, but is this the aim?

In this blog post Aaron Armstrong lists 15 indicators (taken from What is a Healthy Church by Mark Dever) that a church is growing the right way. As I read these I feel challenged to pray for these in the church I pastor.

I encourage you in whatever role you find yourself to set these marks up as a goal to pray for and strive towards seeing these in your congregation. And the best place to start is with ourselves.
