The Church God Wants

What does a good church look like? A quality worship team? A gifted speaker? A huge production? A large paid staff?

The truth is, these things are not biblical. So what does God want in His church? Acts 2 tells us:

“And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
— Acts 2:42-47

Worship

Plainly stated, worship is why we were created. The root of the word worship is worth. So when we worship, we're declaring God's worth. But what the church has become too often is worship (showing worth) of the music...

Family

The church in Acts 2 describes the gathering of believers as a fellowship, or a community—a family. The church today has become an entertainment epicenter with performers and eloquent speakers...

Teaching

Offense. Self-Righteousness. Pride. What would your church look like without these powers operating within your church? Is it possible to eliminate these divisive, satanically-authored strongholds?


AT INNOVATIVE CHURCH WAYS, CHURCH GROWTH ISN’T OUR PRIMARY GOAL...

Our goal is total church health, because healthy churches will naturally grow. We’re told of the early church in Acts 2:46-47:

They worshipped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity—all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.”
