Lesson Scriptures: Lk 11:1-4; Matt 7:7-8; Mark 14:32,39, Act 4:23-31, Heb11:6, Jam 4:2-4, Isa 66:18
MEMORY VERSE: So when they heard that, they raised their voice to God with one accord and said: ‘Lord You are God, who made heaven and earth and the sea, and all that is in them’. (Acts. 4:24) NKJV
The role of prayer in the growth of a church cannot be overemphasized. A prayerless church is a dead church. You are energized as a Christian when you learn the act of consistent and persistent prayer. Being in the presence of God through prayer draws the attention of heaven to us and revitalizes our spirit man. Pray always and not faint.
LESSON 8: EXPANDED THROUGH EVANGELISM
Suggested Hymns: G.H.B. 322, 325
Devotional Readings: Acts 2:37-40
Topic for Adults: Evangelism & Church Growth
Topic for Youths: Populate God’s Kingdom
Topic for Intermediates: Invite Others to Christ
Lesson Scriptures: Acts: 2:40-47; 4:4; 6:7; 11:19-24
MEMORY VERSE: “Now when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of the Lord. As many as had been appointed to eternal life believed” (Acts 13:48) NKJV
Kingdom Growth is our true goal. When new souls are added to the Kingdom of God through evangelism the angels rejoice (Lk. 15:10). Our goal as Christians, is to lead lost souls into a relationship with Jesus Christ. Church Growth should be the same as Kingdom Growth. The Bible does not tell us to market ourselves, but to lead people to Jesus. Church growth is a by-product of winning souls and making disciples.
Believers should know that the only means through which a glorious church can be expanded is evangelism.
