Church? or just a Jesus Fan Club?

Jesus didn’t tell us to grow a church; he told us to make disciples.

If we make disciples, church growth takes care of itself. Naturally. Organically. Authentically.

If we grow a church without making disciples, we have harmed the Kingdom of God — no matter how large the congregation becomes.

And what we have probably isn’t even a church. When it comes time to pay the cost of discipleship, we’ll find out whether you have a church or just a Jesus Fan Club.

Let the person who has ears listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. The number is that of a verse and the number is 6:66 (well, and 6:60-65 too).
