Insight 053: FaithSoaring Churches Nurture Spiritually Maturing People
It is tough for congregations to transform if their leadership and many of their members are not spiritually maturing. If they have become stale in their spiritual formation and see issues from a church culture perspective more than a Christ-centered perspective, it is difficult for them to be open to the new thing God is seeking to do.
Needed is a renewed commitment to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There is no spiritual joy or advantage in missional engagement with people if you do not exhibit to them a spiritually maturing lifestyle.
