The first step is where members begin "growing" in their faith, plus initiates or improves his or her discipleship process toward becoming a fully obedient follower of Christ. It is a tremendous starting place to help members identify their Member Involvement Survey status and Uniquely You Change Indicator (questionnaire.)
Teach all those who attend your church the importance of membership and ministry with the Membership and Ministry - Personalizing My Faith. Don't wait till 301 class to teach them about getting involved in the ministries of your church. They are more excited about getting involved when they first join than they will be later. Encourage all your members to find where they fit best in your church and teach them how to avoid and resolve conflicts once they get involved in order to keep them involved. Also, strengthen your program in order to keep it moving forward through these resources.
Help members to identify and improve their spiritual habits and disciplines toward victorious Christian living. Also use this profile with your program as a powerful resource proven to keep people going around the bases! True discipleship requires members to become spiritually mature. Biblical obedience results in members sharing in the responsibility of serving in their church because they WANT to and not because they HAVE to. Volunteering to serve is the natural and supernatural by-product of Christians who have discovered meaning, purpose, membership, ministry and spiritual maturity. Every member should continue "personalizing" their faith to discover spiritual maturity. Focusing on 13 specific habits, the Spiritual Maturity Class is designed to help members assess their obedience to the Lord. Their daily activity and regular routine are good indicators of the things that are most important to them. Your members' habits will determine their spiritual growth. Members do the things that are most important to them.
Spiritual maturity will result in some kind of ministry leadership. Mature Christians are sought out to lead. New and maturing believers seek those who will influence them to become more Christ-like. Building leaders is absolutely necessary for churches to become healthy and grow as God intends. Maturity results in making disciples. Strong churches stress ministry leadership where leaders breed leaders.
Having a mission with intentionality is the next step toward ultimately magnifying God. The My Missionality Profile is a great resource to help members glorify God through the bearing of much fruit. Every believer in Christ should learn how to share his or her faith, plus disciple other Christians to do the same. This is my Mission With Intentionality.
The main thing in life is to keep the main thing the main thing.
So what is the main thing? Our lives should focus on magnifying God!
We were created to glorify God with our time, talents (gifts), treasures (money), and temple (body). How we use our time, exercise our gifts, manage our treasures, and take care of our temple will determine how we magnify God.
