12 Characteristics of a Healthy Church

  1. Is a teaching church. Shares the Word in a way people understand and people are hungry for the Word. 
  2. Is a mature church. Mature people are committed. They are growing spiritually and make the Word flesh.
  3. Intentionally engaged in relationship building. A church that fellowships; ministries are the cell groups where we live out our faith; people are involved.
  4. Believes in communion. Never forgets the importance and sacredness of the Lord's Supper - where we become one.
  5. Church of intercession. A praying church is a powerful church. Keeps the lines of communication open with God. 
  6. Expects miracles and manifestations. Sees transformed lives through their ministry.
  7. Church that operates in unity. One that encourages and builds up each other. 
  8. Church of givers. They know the principles of sowing and reaping
  9. Church that is portable and not tied to the physical church building. Church of relationship not religion.
  10. Church that praises. Praise is contagious.
  11. Experiences favor with the people. Has the respect of community in which they are situated.
  12. Church that is growing. Everyone is an evangelist.
