Why do people come to Christ?

I thought this was insightful from Lee Powell, pastor of Cedar Creek Church (a GREAT church, by the way) in Toledo, OH.

He was recently asked by Leadership Network’s Eric Swanson why people came to Christ.  Lee’s response:

  • Something was broken
  • Something was missing
  • Something had changed

Eric Swanson writes:

“Cedar Creek is pretty intentional about tracking why people come to Christ and most everybody comes to Christ through those avenues.into the kingdom. Cedar Creek is an outlier in evangelism. Last year they saw over a thousand people come to faith.”

Eric, along with my colleague Brent Dolfo will be launching a two-year initiative on Evangelism in 2014.  If you’re interested you can check out more information here…

QUESTION:  Why do YOU think people come to Christ?  Do you agree with Lee’s assessment?
