HOW TO COMMIT
5 Levels of Commitment:
1. The Community
The community is made up of everyone that you have the potential to reach on a given Sunday.They live near your church, and they are aware of the church’s existence. They may visit occasionally, but they are the unchurched. They have not decided to follow Jesus yet.
2. The Crowd
The crowd consists of all the people who attend the church on a regular basis. They are present a week or two per month or more. They consider themselves to be a part of the church even if they have not joined it; however, they are not involved beyond attending on Sundays.
3. The Congregation
The congregation includes everyone who attends and who has become a member of the church.These are people who attend regularly, give regularly, and support the vision and values of the church. (Will volunteer out of duty vs delight).
4. The Committed
When members are growing in their relationship with Jesus and establishing the habits and
disciplines of a disciple, they are part of the committed. These believers are not only members
who attend, they walk with God and are growing up spiritually. They give financially to the work of God, but are more interested in personal growth such as prayer calls, bible studies, small study groups etc.
5. The Core
The core is among the committed who get involves and serve others through ministries of
the church. The core is one who gives their time, their talents, and their treasures. (serve out of delight vs duty).
