All churches and their leaders should ask themselves these questions:
- How can we train people to live worthy of Christ and Christ Jesus’ call?
- How can we mobilize ordinary people to transform the world?
- What is needed to renew and revive the Christian church?
- How can a gathering of believers mobilize ordinary people?
- How can we transform teach and train disciples?
- Why is it important for ordinary people to hear and know God’s call?
- How can we help people identify their spiritual gifts (how the Holy Spirit is already actively at work in a person’s life)?
- How can we maximize people’s strengths, gifts and talents, including those of our leaders?
- How can we custom design our congregation around the unique “calls” of people?
- How can we build an effective team and organization, building Christ Jesus’ body according to the unique call of His people?
Throughout time, the living Lord has accomplished His plans by calling ordinary people. Church literally means “called out ones” in the Biblical Greek. “Ones” … ordinary people “called” by Jesus “out,” transforming the world with Jesus’ Gospel … this is real church! Scripturally and fundamentally, church is not an organization, institution, place or building. It is ordinary people “called out” by Jesus; therefore, “call” is crucial to being the church. Mobilize an army of ordinary people (no matter what their profession or age) to transform the world, bringing Jesus’ kingdom rule, reign redemption and resurrection power to bear on all people, places, and problems of the world in the power of the Holy Spirit.
