I am convinced that God wants our churches to grow by leading people to Christ and discipling them how to win others. In other words, God wants us to grow by conversion, not simply by the transfer of people from one church to another.
I often tell people the Great Commission does not say, “Go and transfer disciples.” It says, “Go and make disciples.”
God wants us to grow our churches by conversion. What I want to talk to you for a moment about is what I call “5 Essentials in Leading Your Church to Grow by Conversion.”
In other words, if you are going to have a church that does grow by conversion, what are 5 essentials in that area?
- Be an example and not merely and exhorter in evangelism.
- Training must be available 24/7.
- Correct misconceptions about evangelism.
- Have contacts with non-Christians
- Bathe your desire and efforts in prayer, expecting Satanic attack.
Watch my video above (from a recent Facebook Live) as I explain each of these 5 essentials more in-depth.
