Healthy churches are focused more on those outside the church than those inside the church.
This does not mean that you ignore those inside your church. In reality, many churches are already good at caring for those inside the church.
The church is the only institution/organization that exists primarily for those outside of it.
Christian churches are focused on reaching the least, the last, and lost – sharing the priorities of Jesus.
We all have come to faith because of someone else.
We have a world that needs Jesus.
The movement of Jesus is about multiplication.
The Church is the bride of Christ and the tool God has decided to use to spread the Gospel.
Mature Christians set aside their preferences for less mature Christians.
