Video: What is a Successful Church? by Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa

We usually post a recommend book but this month we are posting a recommend video. Our definitions of success are not always the same as God’s. How does your church rate? What is a Successful Church?

Although given at the 2012 Calvary Chapel East Coast Pastors’ Conference, this message is ideal for the whole church. It’s a dose of reality as we realize that our definitions of success are not always the same as God’s and if taken to heart by a congregation, could help a church move forward in unity, seeking the right goals.

When we don’t know how to measure success, we can become discouraged when we should be encouraged, and vice-versa. We can become dissatisfied and angry, finding fault when there is none. We can also become complacent and comfortable when the church is spiritually lacking. This message is a must for everyone in ministry, and will help you understand the measurement of success in God’s eyes.
