Churches can be complicated things. Even a small church of 80-100 people can have many aspects to it: preaching and leadership teams, music groups, youth and children’s ministries, small groups, and so on. Trying to maintain the day-to-day running of all these aspects is one thing, trying to make sure you are being faithful and effective as a church in these areas is another thing all together.
If only we had a few questions that we could ask of ourselves and our churches regularly (weekly, even) that would help us see the extent to which we are being faithful and effective as Christ’s body on the earth.
Thankfully, we do.
