Do you? Do you think it matters whether or not your church is growing? Some will likely get "super-spiritual" here and say something to the effect of "SPIRITUAL growth, not numerical growth is what matters." I contend that it is exactly that attitude which is killing many churches and negatively affecting THE Church's capacity to impact this culture. There are some circumstances where growth is impossible- but it ought to always be important to us. The Great Commission is about the global conquest of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We need to invade our communities with the love of Christ preaching the Good News, healing, helping and bettering them until we can raise the banner of the Lordship of Christ in victory over those communities. I'm afraid an extremely small percentage of us really have this as a goal. And I think that if we don't- we need to repent of our wickedness in sackcloth and ashes and get to work. What do you think?
