Rick Warren: The most overlooked key in growing a church is…

Drum roll please:

I believe the most overlooked key to growing a church is this: We must love unbelievers the way Jesus did. Without His passion for the lost, we will be unwilling to make the sacrifices necessary to reach them.

Love draws people in like a powerful magnet. A lack of love drives people away.

How loving is YOUR church?

How loving are YOU?

    I personally believe that the most overlooked “key” is PRAYER. A church can certainly “grow” in number through human effort…..a church that seriously believes that it is “‘not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit’ says the Lord Almighty” will make PRAYER (I mean REAL prayer)a priority in the “growing” process.

    I totally agree with Rick’s observation…at least it true with church i was part of. The congregation is small, but pastor and its leaders only care for themselves even though they pray often.
