Principles for the church

I came across these principles via another blog. I've picked out the ones that caught my attention.

Programmes don’t attract people; people attract people

As a whole, cluttered and complex churches are not alive.

Growing people grow people; consuming people consume programmes

Strategy as assimilation should not be confused with spiritual formation; one is about getting individuals into the body of Christ, the other is about getting the life of Christ into the individual.

The two biggest reasons people don’t get more involved are 1) they don’t know how and 2) nobody invited them.
