The ESSENTIALS

The History

Several years ago at our annual elders’ retreat, the discussion turned from our agenda to an unplanned, but absolutely crucial issue. How do you define what it means for a church or an individual to be spiritually healthy? Are there spiritual vital signs that expose the health or sickness of the soul? The result of that discussion was a brief list of essential spiritual priorities. Although they can be faked or fabricated, a person or church that is spiritually healthy will always have these vital signs.

We called these priorities—these spiritual vital signs—the essentials.
