Church's Power: The Gospel of Jesus Christ

Leaders must appropriate the power of God through the various means by which He delivers that power. According to Scripture, one source of the church's power comes from the Gospel of Jesus Christ who died on the cross to take the punishment our sin deserves and rose from the dead so we too can experience new life in Him.

Why Church Leaders Need to Pull on the Power of the Gospel

The Gospel is the power leaders need to make an eternal difference. (Rom. 1:16; 1 Cor. 1:17-18)
The Gospel provides power that takes leadership beyond natural abilities. (2 Pet. 1:3-9)

What Gospel Power Leads To

Leaders must regularly pull on Gospel power because therein they find the ability to:
  • be effective and productive (2 Pet. 1:8-90
  • reach goals worthy of any eternal merit (Phil. 3:1-21)
  • gain perspective and confidence to stand with that which counts for eternity (Rom. 1:16; 1 Cor. 1:17-18)
The Steering the Church Toward God's Power Leadership Guide expounds on each of the above points. It also looks at eight other means through which God's power works in and through us.
