Church Plant and keeping score

As we have started weekly services at Redeemer Baptist Church many friends of course have asked "how is the church going?"
Good question.
We had a revival the week before Easter-10 decisions to receive Christ-one being my son.
We had 50 at our first service.
We have had about 30 visitors different visitors the last month.
Lot's of things compete with church on Sunday. We have averaged about a dozen the last few weeks-but with visitors.

How do we we keep score?
2 baptisms, preaching? how doe you rate that? [I hope by biblical faithfulness
Music? We are trying to hit our stride.


We want new people but more importantly we want people to be saved through Christ alone and grow in faith and service.
We will start a series of new bible Studies in homes this summer in July.

As far as keeping score I have told our leadership team
we will use Matthew 6:33 "Seek first his kingdom and righteousness and all these things will be added to you." [NASB]

In Christ Alone!
