Summary: For a church to be effective, there must be a God-sized vision.

God-Sized Vision

Selected Scriptures

I. A Vision Defined

A. Proverbs 29:18 (NIV), “Where there is no

revelation, the people cast off restraint;”

1. Revelation – “Word from God”

2. The nation or church that ignores God’s

Word can anticipate spiritual anarchy and

lack of clear direction

B. Since church growth is a supernatural activity, it

follows that a growth vision will come from God

and be grounded in His Word. Obedience to this

God-given revelation gives the church restraint

and provides direction.

II. A Vision Discovered

A. Initiated by God (Exodus 3:7-10)

B. Discovered through Prayer (Exodus 2:23-24)

C. Accomplished through Human Instrumentation

(Exodus 3:10)

III. A Vision Developed (Acts 13:1-3)

A. The Complexity of the Task – World Evangelization

B. The Communication of the Task

1. Initiated by God (13:2)

2. Discovered through Prayer (13:2)

C. The Commitment to the Task

1. Obedience (13:3)

2. Accomplished through Human

Instrumentation (13:3)
