What is success?

In the New Covenant Scriptures, there is one way and only one way to define success for congregations. It is the fulfillment of the command of Yeshua to make disciples. Yeshua defines making disciples in these terms, "Disciple the nations ... baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and of the Holy Spirit ... teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19)

If one of these principles is ignored we can not successfully make disciples. These principles are found in many classics such as Charles Coleman's The Master Plan of Evangelism and in recent books by Yonggi Cho as well as G-12 (Groups of 12) by Joel Comiskey.
