Church Leadership

Biblical Principles for Leading a Church

 
Welcome to Into Thy Word's "How to Lead and Manage the Church with Biblical Precepts!"
     
 
These studies have been carefully researched and prepared for you from a 10+ year dissertational research study on why churches fail. We surveyed over 1000 churches all over North America and many parts of the world too. We looked at the real causes and motivations why one church succeeds while another close's its doors. While we compared this research with careful steadfast inductive analysis and word studies of God's most precious Word. You will be surprised to see what the real causes of church failure are.They are not always the reasons that many church growth books and researchers have been proclaiming for the last several decades. As we found many of their churches failed too. It is our hope you will become centered to His Word. As our purpose statement states:
 
      "We desire to see a church committed to His purpose and poured out to His ways. Then we will see revival through real prayer and devotion to His Lordship."
  
We can show you comprehensively how to lead and manage your church effectively to glorify our Lord. From how to develop a vision to how to develop and run programs, all you need to know! We can provide you with real Biblical church growth tools that consultants charge thousands of dollars for, all for you to use for free!

Biblical Principles of God's Call to Manage His Flock!
 
The goal of this Primer is to lay forth to you suggestions from God's Word and from my own experience on how to effectively run a church. These are based on many years of research and study and observing the top 1000+ churches in the world as well as personal church growth consulting and pastoral experience. A general overview will be given, followed by a step-by-step plan on how to effectively organize for His glory. Although church growth is the goal, this Primer is not based on traditional church growth jargon, even though some of the principles are applied. After years of...
 
 
The Church exists by what Christ has done for us in and for His glory and the production of His work. The church exists for us to be in Christ our Lord, to be His people, and His hands and feet. It may have started with the promise to Abraham...
 
 
Why we should go to Church, when to leave a Church?
 
Do you want to go to church, but feel lost there? Do you dread going to church? Do you wonder why or even if you should go to church? Here is what you can do, so do not give up on Church!
 
 
This emergent or postmodern or Emerging Church is fairly new as a movement, yet is has shadows all through church history as everything has been new at one point including the Church itself. Perhaps this emergent church is a spinoff of the "Jesus Movement" in the 70's, an inspirational application of Schaffer's influence, a journey to new things in order to catch others for the faith

When we take careful view of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, we see three areas of responsibility that we are called to do. John 15 expresses these three priorities all together beautifully, and I list several other passages that support these essential priorities, just turn to a concordance and see for yourself. Out of these priorities, we can take God's Word and contextualize it to the streets and to the direct needs of the people, so they can come to the knowledge of our Lord.

The Twelve Characteristics of the Healthy Church

These are the 12 characteristics that form a church that pleases our Lord. Each of these distinctions are extremely important; however I feel I placed them in a hierarchal arrangement. That is the first one is more important than the second. And the first one begets the second that begets the third and so forth. So each one when practiced is...

Is Your Church Healthy?

What would your church look like if you took away the pastor(s), the music and worship, the buildings, the favored programs, the sacraments and ceremonies, as well as the events and Sunday School? What would you have left? The answer of what is left is what impacts and what resounds in your church, and is where your church's health lies. Because doing church is not about the pastor, the observances, or the programs. It is about how we...

The Praying Church

Is your church stuck or stagnant? Perhaps you are not well connected to the One who is to direct your church! Is prayer at your church dull, dry, and boring? Why?
