Question Answered: Time to represent > Boast In The Lord

 Should we advertise or promote our own local church on social media or should we focus more on promoting God and the body of Christ as a whole?

FACT:  No matter how spiritual your church is people will not attend if they simply do not know how to get there.
How about that for some deep theologyJ

I appreciate your concern about how the cause of Christ is presented.
We Americans are in an “either or” mindset.
FOX or MSNBC?  RED STATE or BLUE STATE? Yankees or Red Sox?
In Georgia it is "Tech or Georgia?"

Advertise your church to advertise the glory and mission of Christ Jesus.

To me it does not sound like you are in an “Either OR” situation if it is all to Lift Jesus Up.

2 Corinthians 10:13-18 (New American Standard Bible)

13 But we will not boast beyond our measure, but within the measure of the sphere which God apportioned to us as a measure, to reach even as far as you. 14 For we are not overextending ourselves, as if we did not reach to you, for we were the first to come even as far as you in the gospel of Christ; 15 not boasting beyond our measure, that is, in other men’s labors, but with the hope that as your faith grows, we will be, within our sphere, enlarged even more by you, 16 so as to preach the gospel even to the regions beyond you, and not to boast in what has been accomplished in the sphere of another. 17 But he who boasts is to boast in the Lord. 18 For it is not he who commends himself that is approved, but he whom the Lord commends.
