For our small church this has resulted in a 10% growth in membership and a 9% growth in attendance. Plus, this Sunday we will be baptizing a young woman in our worship service.
A couple of months ago, two young men accepted the Lord Jesus downstairs in our Sunday School while their grandmother upstairs in worship rededicated her life! Obviously the Holy Spirit was working on both floors that day. Last Summer we baptized a family of four who are mostly new to the faith.
Why have we been experiencing this growth? I can’t really say except we are being faithful to our vision of being living messengers for Jesus who share God’s love with others in all of our ministries.
A little over a year ago when we changed the name of the church, we had two prayers and goals in mind: 1. We desired to attract non-believers to our church. 2. We desired to attract believers who had recently moved into our community.
God has certainly honored both those requests in these new members. I am pleased God has blessed our focus on vision and outreach.
