Excerpt

The best place to find answers to questions about how to handle a rapidly growing congregation is the Owner’s Manual. The church is the body of Christ; God’s Word best explains what the body of Christ should be doing during its growth period. One great place to start in God’s Word is the book of Titus.

On one of his missionary journeys, Paul had planted a church on the island of Crete and had appointed Titus as the senior minister of this growing congregation. The island of Crete must have been a dreadful place to try to build a church. Paul says that one of their own writers described the Cretans as ‘liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons’ (Titus 1:12). But even on this pagan and spiritually hardened island, Paul and Titus had established a growing congregation.

Later Paul wrote Titus a letter giving him instructions on how to order the church during its growth period. A careful study of this letter will remind church leaders of some basic truths regarding what God wants for the body of Christ and will help to ensure that your congregation remains on the right track throughout its growth, regardless of the pressures from the outside world.” (pp. 4-5)
