The Purpose of the Missional Vital Signs:
Is to help church leaders increase their congregation’s through...........

1.) Faithfulness to our biblical mission, “Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” By focusing attention on the five core practices involved in cultivating mature followers of Jesus Christ, Missional Vital Signs helps leaders remain true to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). 

2.) Fruitfulness in fulfilling our biblical mission. By tracking one measurement for each practice, leaders gain a sense of whether their congregation is becoming more or less effective in carrying out the Great Commission.  Jesus made it clear in John 15:1-8 that fruitfulness is expected as part of faithfulness.
