How can we grow the church?
Many congregations are not growing, so this is or should be an urgent question!
The answer is that we do not grow the church, the Holy Spirit does.
A careful study of the Book of Acts as well as the practical experience from being on the front-lines of the worldwide movement of the Holy Spirit does bring us some answers.
The Acts model of a congregation that grows is one in which there are Two Foundations – leaders and people growing in Christ and filled with the Holy Spirit.
Built on these foundations are The Seven Dynamics of Cooperating with the Holy Spirit that enable us to cooperate with the Holy Spirit.
