We had the privilege of interviewing our good friend and mentor, Tom Paterson.  In this short video clip, Tom emphasizes a core conviction of ours – the church was meant to grow.  In the book of Matthew, Christ gave us the mission of the local church, and in the book of Acts we see the church’s impact increasing day by day.  Clearly the early church got the message as it unleashed the power of the Gospel on the world.
Here are some questions to consider as you listen to Tom:
  • Is the Great Commission at the center of your church?
  • Are you being obedient to Jesus’ words?
  • What could be holding your church back from reaching its Gospel potential?
