The Keys To Church Growth

Ephesians 4:12-16

In these verses, Paul gives the four key purposes of the gifts which Christ has imparted to the church. We will study the first two of these this week and will leave the final two for next week.

Jesus granted the gifts for what we will call the finish work:

  1. Building Maturity (4:12)
  2. Building Unity (4:13)
  3. Bringing About Protection (4:14)
  4. Bringing About Growth (4:15-16)

"The Sunday morning sermon isn’t the finish line for the ministry of the Word, it’s the starting line. It is the beginning of the real work, as the congregation takes God’s Word and puts it to work through the week." ~ Jamie Dunlop

"The church’s obedience is a living testimony to the world. There are many things that hurt a church and its testimony. The primary one is poor leadership which fails to build the church on the Word of God." ~ John MacArthur
