Listen to the words of Francis Chan:
“You go to a building, someone gives you a bulletin, you sit in a chair, you sing a few songs, a guy delivers maybe a polished message, maybe not, someone sings a solo, you go home.
“Though Christians believe in an almighty and all powerful God who places His spirit in believers, the response among His people today is, ‘Hi, welcome to church. Here’s your bulletin. We’ll get you out in an hour. Come back next week.’
“I mean, really? Is that all God intended for us?”
Is that the church we see germinating and growing throughout the New Testament book of Acts? Hear the words of Jesus: “You shall receive POWER…You shall be my witnesses…”
