Church growth isn’t about filling a building. It’s about filling the neighborhood with the good news of the love of Jesus.
We Need To Empty Our Churches
There have been too many times in history when churches have been filled, while the neighborhood around them has gone to hell – in both senses of that term.
Every truly great church experience should be aimed towards two things: Magnifying the risen Christ, and sending believers out better equipped to love, serve and share the good news in word and deed.
Let’s start measuring church health, growth and spiritual renewal by how we empty our churches, not just how we fill them.
