12 Traits: Embracing God’s Design for the Church

The church belongs to Jesus. Will you trust Him to call the shots? Unfortunately, many Christians never stop to ask what God’s Word says about how the church should function and what it should be doing. They assume that the church’s mission is dependent on our own abilities and creativity. In this resource, David Platt highlights twelve traits from God’s Word that should characterize every church.

  1. Preaching & Teaching
  2. Evangelism
  3. Discipleship
  4. Prayer
  5. Giving
  6. Membership
  7. Ordinances
  8. Fellowship
  9. Accountability & Discipline
  10. Leadership
  11. Worship
  12. Mission

No church is perfect, but as we embrace God’s design, we will find that His wisdom and His power are more than sufficient for the mission Christ has given to His people—to make disciples of all nations.

 

Less than 1% of all money given to missions goes to unreached people and places.*

That means that the people with the most urgent spiritual and physical needs on the planet are receiving the least amount of support. Let's change that!
