Who Builds, Leads, Grows the Church?

JESUS CHRIST
  • The Foundation of the Church – 1 Corinthians 3:11
  • The Builder of the Church – Matthew 16:18
  • The Cornerstone of the Church – 1 Peter 2:6
  • The Head of the Church – Ephesians 1:22
  • The One Who Grows the Church – 1 Corinthians 3:7
Logo, Branding, Strategy, Website, Events are all a distant second to dependence on Jesus.
  • Does your church promotion, worship gatherings, events include and point people to Jesus? or just to your brand?
  • Are you, Pastor / Planter, communicated as the foundation, builder, head, key component, grower of the church? or have you led people to see Jesus as the essential key?
  • Do you carry the weight of the church on your shoulders, when Jesus clearly has taken that weight upon himself?
  • Do you trust Jesus with the growth of your church, listening to Him for guidance and direction for the future of your church?
I am not the founder, the builder, the cornerstone, the head, the grower of the church. This is not MY church. These are not MY people. Jesus, build, lead, grow your church this week. Use me if necessary.
