- Is the churches vision based on Matthew 28:19-20; sharing the gospel with the lost, baptizing them, and teaching them to be obedient to God Word?
- Are they reaching the lost, saving them, and discipling them?
- Are the members interested in conforming their mind, to that of Jesus Christ, which is our daily commitment?
- Has this body of believers set themselves apart from the world so that they are NOT engaging in the sinful activities the world promotes, and accepting the corrupt mind the outside world has so embraced?
- Do the members as well as community have good things to say about the unity among its members?
- Is the church active in the community, supporting other churches to meet the ministry and evangelistic, and spiritual needs of the community instead of being self-serving?
Prayer: Father help me as a member of a local church to look beyond the power lines and focus on the heart of the church. May we have your heart, thus enabling us to be a "light" to our community. In Jesus name, Amen.
