Celebrating 50,000 Baptisms – No Matter How Many Churches It Takes
Saddleback Church deserves to be honored for baptizing 50,000 people over the last 38 years. But we should never limit our attention to churches with outsized numbers.

Celebrating Faithfulness

This is not intended in any way to diminish what God has done through the ministry of Rick Warren and the rest of the staff and congregation of Saddleback Church. It’s simply an acknowledgment that we should never limit our celebration or attention to churches with outsized numbers.

This is my small “thank you” to every church that is doing your part. What you do may never be noticed in the news, on my blog, or even in your own denomination. But it is seen and celebrated in heaven.
