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.
Many programs die or falter because they don't start right. The Personalizing My Faith plan helps members visualize their step-by-step approach toward victorious Christian Living. It is a highly effective way to disciple and assimilate members into the ministry of your church.
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.)
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.
Personalizing My Faith Spiritual Maturity Starter Kit
Help members to identify and improve their spiritual habits and disciplines toward victorious Christian living.
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.
