Most churches do a good job of measuring what Micah Fries calls the “three B’s”— budgets, buildings, and baptisms.
Those are helpful, he said. But they don’t always show whether a church is fulfilling its mission to make disciples.
“Every church should ask two questions,” said Fries, director of ministry development for LifeWay Christian Resources. “‘Are we healthy?’ and ‘Are we making disciples?”’
I’ve said in the past that a Church should ask itself:
- Do we have a plan to make disciples?
- Is it working?
