Over decades of research and work with churches we have been able to measure what makes for a truly healthy, transforming church. Transforming churches are found in all sizes, in all locations, in all denominations (and no denominations), with all kinds of worship styles, theological emphases, and leadership structures.
So, what makes a church a transforming church? And how can you measure how your church is doing in terms of health?
Here are five key indicators of church health:
- Are members at your church experiencing authentic life change?
- Does your church have a clear sense of mission and a compelling vision for the future?
- Does your church embrace change to fulfill its mission more effectively?
- Are your leaders successfully mentoring and mobilizing your members for ministry?
- Is your church effective in seeing transformation in your local community as a result of its ministries?
If your answer is a strong “yes” to these questions, congratulations!
If you see areas for improvement as you consider these questions, take heart! There is no reason in the world why your church can’t move towards health and transformation.
We’d love to help you discover how God is already at work in your church and how you can maximize its unique potential
