What’s a good church? What’s an effective church? How do we know we are on track? Every Christian person (and most others too) have a picture of a “good” church in their minds. This picture is developed from many experiences, sermons, mentors and cultural influences. In order to discern God’s vision for your congregation, you must let go of this picture…whatever it is…as much as you can. It’s not that this mental model is wrong or bad – It’s simply that it is your mental model for the church. Even this needs to be laid at the feet of Jesus.
