Summary: Church growth happens when members grow 3 ways

1. Growing Out

Growth happens when we reach out and fulfill the Great Commissionin our lives and our churches. Mark 16:15; Matt 9:35-38

2. Growing in

Growth happens when we overcome the urge to keep our circle of friends small and closed. John 13:34-35

we like to keep our circle of friends small and closed, because familiar friends make us feel comfortable and safe. But if you are to grow, you must reach out to others, invite them into your circle of friends if your life and church are to grow

3. Growing Up

Growth happens when we see the needs of others as more important than our own comfort and convenience. Romans 12:5
