What we used to define as “church” isn’t working anymore.
Once-lauded methods for growing churches and discipling believers fail to get traction. The Church must find a new approach for a missionary era.
Jesus gave his followers seven key practices:
- The Lord’s Supper
- Proclaiming the gospel
- Being with the “least of these”
- Being with children
- Fivefold ministry gifting
- Kingdom prayer
When we practice these disciplines, God becomes faithfully present to us, and we in turn become God’s faithful presence to the world. These seven practices can revolutionize the church’s presence in our neighborhoods, transform our way of life in the world, and advance the kingdom.When we practice these disciplines, God becomes faithfully present to us, and we in turn become God's faithful presence to the world.
