Abstract

"It is interesting that as part of the 2013 GCMS, respondents worldwide were asked how community outreach helped members develop their spiritual/religious life. One third (32.6%) indicated that outreach had a big impact on their spiritual life, and another quarter (25.4%) indicated that it often had an impact. Another quarter shared that it only sometimes had an impact, while less than one in ten (8.6%) said it never had an impact.

Spiritual life cannot be contained to one day a week (Sabbath) or to activities conducted in a specific building (the church). It is vitally important to church life that members are involved in spiritual activities throughout the week. It is also critical that Christ-followers share the love of Jesus to those who live in their neighborhoods or villages, towns, and cities."
