I was just looking at a IFB church's website. The church was in TX. The pastor has been there 20yrs. They have about 1200 members who regularly attend. However on their website under the pastor's bio. (interesting) I see that they average around 600 baptisms a year. So lets see. over the last 20yrs. X 600 baptisms per year somes to about 12,000 people. The church stated plainly that they run about 1200. So where did the 9000 or so other folk go? Over the 20 or 22 year ministry of this pastor they have had according to their own documentation 12,000 people that have been saved. At least that is what I thought happened to a person if they have been baptized? Not that baptism saves you I'm just being a little sarcastic. Only 10% or so of the 12,000 that have made "decisions"over a 20yr. period have remained in the church etc...? I just have to laugh. A church basically brags about all these baptisms yet can't even see themselves that maybe something "ain't right"? How arrogant or maybe ignorant it is to make such a claim of 12,000 people coming to Christ under your church's ministry yet you can't find no more than about 10% of them all together. What do some of you all think?
