A Light Unto My Path - Leach Jay R.
Many congregations and church leaders are faced with the collapse of the institutional church culture in America. A great number of them have retreated inside their four walls and created church activities to replace their Christ-given mission to make disciples, and thereby extending His kingdom on earth "thy kingdom come." Abandoning their mission means they have abandoned their real identity and reason for existence. Others have gone to the other extreme by selling out to the culture. Their worship service is a form of entertainment with the objective "to feel good" and "be happy." Both choices have turned off many saved people, and they have left the church. In 1998, a Barna poll reflected that 20 million born-again Christians had withdrawn their membership. Today's poll shows an increase to 115,000 million. Many are out there striving to reboost the church's lost mission "to make disciples" and "thy kingdom come." God has not changed His mind!
