Four attitudes of a healthy church

Preaching on the Holy Spirit recently I've been struck how much theheart should define true Christianity. It set me thinking as I was drafting 'aims' for our churches, that 'attitudes' to aim for are perhaps needed more than goals. So here are my four. If you have read Rick Warren you will notice his influence on the 'M's:

A craving for God's glory... that leads to magnification
A commitment to God's church...
that leads to ministry
A confidence in God's word... that leads to maturity
A concern for God's world...
that leads to mission
