Church Vitality is frequently assessed with 3 basic indicators - Attendance, Baptisms and Contributions. It's like height, weight, blood pressure, and pulse that you get taken at the doctor. It doesn't tell you everything, but their rates are signals that there might be a problem or that things are going well.
In 2021, the NAD Evangelism Advisory established 4 categories of Church Vitality to provide helpful diagnoses for Church Revitalization.
|Multiplying||>= 7% of Attendance in past yr||AND||>= 7% increase in past yr||in past 7 yrs|
|Growing||> 2% of Attendance in past yr||AND||> 2% increase in past yr|
|Declining||0% in past yr||OR||< -2% increase in past yr|
Find the Church Vitality for any congregation on the "Reports" tab (of the Organization page). The "Attendance %", "Baptism %" and "Ch Plant" columns show the individual criteria and the "Category" column shows the overall vitality for each year.
