The “Church” and “Growth” 101

    1. (Title slide) The “Church” and “Growth”

a.This section explores the current status of Christianity in the world, including which kinds of churches and denominations are growing and where they are located. We will ask what is the “church” and what is “growth?”

b.In this section we will know that Christ’s Church is growing, but that it is growing differently in different parts of the world. The student will feel that he too can make a contribution to this growth and will be motivated to explore further the field of Church Growth.

    1. What is the Church?

      1. What is the Church?

c.Are we the church in the class?

d.Is a class room full of students the church? (force to answer “yes” or “no”)

e.How are people sitting in a classroom the church?

f.Do we have a pastor, choir, Sunday school? What components are necessary for us to be able to say we are the church?

g.If three of us ride in a bus together, are we the church? (y/n)

h.If we are not the church, then what are we?

i.What is the difference between being “part” of the Body of Christ and being the Church?

j.Jesus said that he is present if two or three of us gather in his name. Jesus is also with us when we are alone, even to the ends of the earth.

k.Would you agree that 10 Christians in a classroom are part of the Body of Christ and that Jesus is with us? (y/n)

l.Would you agree that our purpose in a class is not the same function as our purpose in gathering on Sunday morning? (y/n)

      1. We institutionalize the believers into an organized group located in a specific building.

m.Is it right to speak of these organized local institutions as the church? (y/n)

n.In what biblical and in what practical ways are they connected to each other and in what ways are they separate? (church discipline, finances, leadership)

o.Is the idea of a “denomination” or “union” a biblical one?

p.Would it be acceptable for 10 people in a classroom to decide that we are a local church and to begin to function as a local church? (We will baptize you and ordain you.)

      1. How big is the Church?

q.What do we mean when we speak of the size of the church?

r.When someone ask you, “How large is your church?” How do you answer?

s.Is the number of members a way to speak of the size of the church?

t.Is the size of the building a way to speak of the size of the church?

u.Is the amount of active workers a way to speak of size?

v.Is the potential a way of speaking of size?

w.Is the number of services and amount of activity a way to measure size?

* 2.

      1. It is bigger than any single congregation or denomination?

        1. Are we the only “Christians?”

        2. Are the Orthodox part of the Church? Are they part of “my” church?

        3. Are we and the Pentecostals a part of the same Body?

        4. God has chosen to allow the Church to exist in forms that are larger than my own experience.

        5. We need to be careful not to think like Elijah that we are the only one.

          1. (1 Kings 19:18) "Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel--all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and all whose mouths have not kissed him.""
      2. We may speak of both the “congregational” as well as the “universal” church.

        1. The Bible speaks separately of these two ideas.

        2. In this class we will usually speak of the local church because it is where we do our work.

    1. What is “Growth”

      1. Is growth good or bad?

        1. Is growth from 40 to 70, good or bad? What if this is the amount of money that you owe?

        2. If we worship for 3 hours instead of 2, is that growth? Is that good or bad?

      2. Are there different kinds of growth?

        1. Quality – quantity – physical – spiritual growth

        2. Are some kinds of growth more important than others? I think so.

      3. Is growth measurable and observable?

        1. All growth cannot be measured with the same units of measurement.

        2. What is the weight of love, or the color of faith? How many meters is forgiveness?

        3. So how do we measure growth?

        4. So we see that it is not a simple task to define what we mean by “growth.”

        5. Some growth is good and other is not, some growth is easily measured and other is not.

    2. Is this time the growing season?

      1. If I plant crops today, will they grow?

        1. If I plant tomatoes in December will they grow?

      2. It is the growing season in different parts of the world at different times.

        1. December is the time to time to plant tomatoes in Australia. Because they are on the other side of the equator, their growing season is opposite of us.

* 3.

      1. We must not see the entire world from our own point of view.

a.December is not the time to plant tomatoes in Ukraine, but it is the time for planting tomatoes in Australia.

b.Just because our church or our situation is not having growth at this moment in time, does not mean that God is not blessing someone else or blessing in a different place.

      1. Just because it is not the growing season for one crop, does not mean that it may not be the growing season for another crop. The same is true with different churches and different denominations.

        1. We are not the only instrument in the hand of God.

        2. We are not the only place where God is working.

        3. Is it possible that we can learn from God’s activity in other places and through other people?

        4. We are saying that we must open our eyes wider than our own experience and learn from what God in doing in other places and through other people.

        5. We can learn from the church in other parts of the world.
