Two Qualities of a Successful Church

Sunday Musings

Bible Basics for New Believers“When the Gentiles heard this, they began rejoicing and glorifying the word of the Lord; and as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed. And the word of the Lord was being spread through the  whole region.”

—Acts 13:48-49

Qualities of a Successful Church Plant

  1. A growing number of Gentiles glorifying ‘the word of the Lord.’
  2. The word of the Lord spreading throughout a region.

Nothing about programs, nothing about a slamming worship band, nothing about great preaching. It is all about new believers, glory for God and his word, and an expanding proclamation of the word of the Lord in a region.

How is your church doing?

  1. Excellent. Once again using the Bible as the authority – what other authority do we have.

    Thanks again for making room in your schedule Marty to train the group planting a church in the Arlington Heights region.

    You were an amazing blessing to them and to me.



    1. Hey it was a delight to be with the group from Arlington Heights and Mount Prospect and to train church planters with you again. I’m praying you have a great and productive trip to Mexico representing DCPI and fanning the flames for more church planting around the world.
