Insight 308: FaithSoaring Churches Remember it is Christ’s Church
Congregations seeking to transform realize that the success and significance of our congregation is not dependent on their leadership, ideas, or talents. Their congregation is part of Christ’s church and rests on the shoulders of Christ.
This same Christ has filled the congregation with people who have the spiritual gifts, skills, and preferences to empower the vitality of the congregation as part of Christ’s church. The responsibility of the congregation is to affirm that Christ is “the head of the body the church” and from this foundation to call forth the spiritual gifts of the people to do Christ’s work.
