despite the existing "mega Churches" of 5000 +. found out past Sunday from official statistics that some 94 % of all reporting baptist churches, membership size of 1-499, are where american attend each week! 94 % of us fellowship/meet/attend churches sized up to 500... So God indeed does his "heavy lifting" in smaller local churches! same results seen in china, as their govt reports 23 million "official" christian, but if you add in the small home groups, number come to roughly 130 million! So if you currently are in a smaller sized church, have hope and confidence in the fact that the Lord delights in using smaller sized groups!
