CHURCH GROWTH SERMON OUTLINES

by Nelson Price

As a lovely flower grows into full bloom it matures in form and essence. It releases its fragrance as its beauty is beheld. Likewise, a church grows in its form by numerical increase and in its essence by evidencing spiritual attributes; the fruit of the Spirit. Good preaching is essential to both aspects of church growth. There can be good preaching without growth but there can’t be growth without good preaching. It is conceivable that there...

Wherever you go on the mission fields of this world to the pastorates of this world you will find one common problem - it is a phenomenon that touches the lives of camp workers, business people, presidents of schools and teachers, pastors and staff members. What is it? It is the problem of delegation. It occurs when leaders try to do too much on their own, when they neglect to bring others...

Church growth is wonderful as it begins in the local church. But the key to long-lasting growth is maintaining spiritual momentum. A recent survey showed that out of 5,000 pastors, less than one-half wanted to plan and implement church growth. Rather than growth, their priorities were set on maintenance. These pastors felt that making the existing church members comfortable was of higher importance than growth...

So if you have been with us over the past several weeks we have been taking a broad strokes look at the church considering the very first church that Jesus himself established. So we have been looking through the book of Acts and we have been trying to make some observations about what was true of them and then we have been asking ourselves is this true of us? And we have been...

Let me begin by asking you a question? Rather, I want you to ask yourself a question. What kind of Church would my Church be if every member were just like me? Would my Church be a great Church or would it be something besides great? The reality is that our Church is what we are as members. No Church will ever be anything more than what its members are...

Now join me tonight in Colossians chapter 1. We are beginning a new series of messages tonight that I believe will not only set our course throughout 2003, but for the years to come. And my, how we need a course set! And not only us, but every New Testament church! But here's the tragedy: most churches don't know where they are going! Most churches across America are like sailboats without a rudder, they are just...

Jesus was preparing to send the 70 on a preaching mission. His instructions were comprehensive: They were told where to go, what to say, and what to expect. They should expect rejection, arrests, scourging's, hatred and even death. Then he reminds them ''That the servant is no greater than his master.'' He was to experience those things and they should expect no less...

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, ''Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!'' Jesus did not merely come to suppress sin, but to make an end of it. Sin was defeated in Christ, and any who are in Christ have been freed from sin. Romans 6:7 concludes that since we were buried with....

Such is true with our growth in God. It may not be evident to you but your growth is evident to others, especially those that are older than you. Ephesians 1:15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge...

I've been on vacation these weeks. I haven't preached in so long, I told one of my boys that I may preach like Paul. And sometime he just preached all night. My son said, ''Yeah, but one fellow went to sleep in the window and fell out of the window and was killed.'' I said, ''Yeah, but Paul went out and raised him from the dead and put him back in the window and kept on preaching.'' My son said, ''When you can do...

They especially want their church to grow.Every time I turn around there is another book, blog, study or conference being promoted to help churches grow. There are endless perspectives on how to...

Summer is my favorite time of the year. I fire up the Old John Deere and mow the grass. For those of you who like to mow grass I would introduce you to bamboo grass it is found in Vietnam and grows only sixteen inches per day, it grows to 120' in height- the size of an 11 story building. If you have your Saturday free why don't you...

Fellowship:Growth groups allow believers to meet with fellow believers of similar age and life experiences on a regular basis. Growth group meetings are intentionally relaxed, with limited structure in order to allow for maximum spontaneity and sensitivity to the ever changing needs of the group. Growth group meetings involve...

In the state of Indiana, if you're going to build a house, or an office building, or a church building, the first thing you've got to have is... a blueprint. If you don't have a blueprint, they won't let you build. Now you might ask - why do they call it a blueprint? Well, back in the 1800s, there was a man named John Hershel. He was a...
