When they believe are they immediately obeying by being baptized? (Generally, this is a group decision and baptism). (Acts 8:36-38; Mt. 28:19-20)
Are they clear and certain about Scripture’s authority? (2 Petr. 1:19-21)
Are these new groups of believers intentional to start functioning as churches (Acts 14:23) – How are you helping them discover this scripturally?
Are you resisting the temptation to import your own cultural and denominational approach to how church services, church facilities and other things are to be done? (Acts 18:7) Are you allowing the Holy Spirit to guide them into all truth? (John 16:13)
Are the believers praying and praising God joyfully in their heart language? (Acts 2:11)
Are new believers testifying about their new found faith immediately? (Acts 9:20) – Are they being equipped to interact with skeptical nonbelievers? (1 Cor. 15)
Beside outreach, is there worship that focuses on God (2 Cor. 13:14), teaching of the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27), fellowship, praying together and the breaking of bread (Acts 2:42), signs and wonders, and a love that manifests itself in acts of mercy (Lk. 10:25-37; Gal. 6:10)?
Are new congregations being helped to do outreach to other places from the beginning? (Acts 1:8, Mt. 10:5-7; Acts 19:10)
Are existing congregations listening to God to start new outreaches into areas which are not yet reached, as the Holy Spirit did in Antioch (Acts 13:2-3)?
