I’m a process-oriented personality. Over the years, with much trying and learning, I understand that every vital church has implemented the above process in some form or fashion.
DOOR OF WELCOME helps us build relationships with our community.
These relationships hopefully help cultivate in our new friends a DESIRE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT GOD.
As we seek God, He promises to be found! This encounter leads to a DECISION to follow Jesus, recycle back through relationship, or (painfully) leave relationship with us and reject the Good News of Jesus.
As the Spirit draws people to make the decision to follow Jesus, He draws them into DISCIPLESHIP with God and deeper relationships with other believers: Commitment, Accountability, and Development phases prepare each of us to become a multiplier of Jesus into other people we invite and meet at the welcome door!
Is your church implementing these stages intentionally?
