The Healthy Church
The healthy church has two main essential components; the unity and oneness of the body of Christ and loving one another; they are the fulfillment of multiplying disciples and expanding of the gospel. The Bible accentuates the unity of the body of Christ. The Holy Spirit produces within each individual the fruit of the Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace, Forbearance, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control) in order to establish relationships, maintain fellowship and unity among believers. Love is the bond of peace that holds the members of the body of Christ together. The body of Christ must strive to procure these two components in order to metamorphose into a healthy church.
The healthy church has four characteristics; they are clarity of the vision and mission, transformational conflict, authentic community, and transparent communication. These characteristics have been proven to work; if they are implemented the church will experience signs of stability and growth.
The congregation must have a clear understanding of the church’s mission and vision; they must assemble, adapt, and support the mission statement. The congregation must strive to maintain unity and demonstrate their love to one another; they cannot allow any conflicts to divide them. For the body of Christ consists of people from different walks of life and background; sometimes minute issues can divide them; it is imperative that their lives be transformed by the Holy Spirit to assist them in reaching maturity.
The community must be acutely aware that the congregation is truly representing Jesus Christ and their lives are a reflection of their commitment. Their lives will have an impact on the community because of their faithfulness to Him. More to come……
