Podcast Episode #567
What you celebrate, you become. And today we discuss ways churches can celebrate how God is working in them and through them.
Some highlights from today’s episode include:
- We need to celebrate salvations in our churches because it will engender more evangelism by our members.
- Churches should celebrate the gospel impact being made in their communities.
- Other churches are not your competitors. They are cooperating in your church’s mission to reach its community.
- When we celebrate answered prayers, we are celebrating the work of God.
The six reasons we discuss are:
- Ministry volunteers
- Community impact
- Other churches
- Prayers answered
- Involvement in groups
- Bible reading
