7 Principles of an Engaging Church

7 Principles of an Engaging Church.jpg

Our Staff and Deacons have been working diligently with me to formulate a long range vision for our congregation. On three consecutive Sundays, August 5, 12 and 19, we will be sharing together our emerging hopes and dreams for First Baptist Decatur for the coming five years. We are calling it: Seven Principles for an Engaging Church: iWeTHEE.

We will strive to be a church that is:

  • Inviting
  • Welcoming
  • Evangelizing
  • Transforming
  • Helping
  • Encouraging
  • Engaging

Each principle carries with it a healthy range of planning, initiatives and goals that we pray will guide us well over the coming months together. I am excited about what our church leadership is offering. And I look forward to a faithful journey, working together on this holy ground of congregational life, learning each day how to love and be loved in the name of Jesus.
