Canon for Congregational Vitality
What is Open Doors/Puertas Abiertas?
Open Doors is a tool for our churches that identifies characteristics of congregational health and practices that foster a common language of development. These practices are consistent and reliable marks of vitality across churches, regions and ministries, and are dependent neither on financial resources, nor on geography, nor on a congregation’s size. An individual congregation need not carry out all of these practices in order to show vitality, but a vital congregation will always carry out at least some of those described in each section.
