five alive

The purpose of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. But how do we do that? The way that God draws people into a relationship with himself is through congregations that fulfill Jesus’ ministry in the world.
Fruitful congregations repeat and improve on these five basic practices: Passionate Worship, Intentional Faith Development, Radical Hospitality, Extravagant Generosity and Risk-Taking Mission.
The practices are basic and fundamental. But it’s the adjectives that make these words come alive, because they stretch us and cause us to ask ourselves, “How are we doing in practicing these qualities of ministry in our congregation? How might we do better?” Join us as we look for answers in our new sermon series; FIVE ALIVE!
