Foundations of a (Biblically) Healthy Well-Balanced Church
This is a self-paced course designed to enable people to recognize church congregations that are functioning in accordance with Biblical standards. It is provided in MS PowerPoint format. The overall premise is that every congregation should have a collective focus on Christ Jesus. The Mind of Christ should be leading the decisions made in the government of the congregation. The congregation should be fulfilling Biblical callings.
The course is also useful by congregational leaders in diagnosing the overall health of their congregation and determining appropriate steps to improve health and balance in the congregational function. When used in this way, the course facilitator needs to use practical examples and stimulate discussions.
Studies have shown that fewer than 10% of all congregations are Biblically healthy, and probably less than half of healthy churches are well-balanced in their ministries. MATTHEW 25:34-40 Ministries seeks to help congregations grow in health and balance. All of the Ministry courses are freely available to others to use, as long as source attribution is maintained.
