Are Churches Changing Culture or is Culture Changing Church?

Last week’s post outlined the biblical definition of “church”, showing how it has been redefined over recent decades in America.  The principal words for “church” found in Scripture, Ekklesia meaning “assembly of called out ones” and Kuriakos meaning “those belonging to the Lord”, both refer to the church in terms of a collective body of individual believers.  Yet now, society sees church as a “what” and not a “who”.

7 Impediments to Unity of the Body of Christ

Among all of the calls for unity among believers in the Bible, we need look no further than John 17, Jesus’ heartfelt prayer for His followers right before He went to the cross.

“That they may be one as we are one – I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity.  Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” (vs.

Older Doesn’t Mean More Mature (in Christ)

The “maturity” of a Christian has little to do with how long ago that person accepted Christ.  Likewise, the “maturity” of a church has little to do with how long it has been in existence.  In fact, there is often an inverse relationship between the amount of time that has passed since:

  • one’s rebirth and the depth of a person’s walk with the Lord
  • the planting a church and its overall spiritual “health”

“Younger” churches are often more mature…

Consider the following signs of “maturity” and typical changes that occur over the life of a church:

Discipleship

  • New – Fewer staff and members gives leaders more time to invest in each one
  • Old – Growth leads to less personalized,

How Can Your Church Engage Millennials?

Many churches are at a loss as to how to retain Millennials.  Recent studies show that more than 50% of Millennials who grew up in church have left.  Churches are innovating to accommodate young people, including new programs, facilities, retreats, activities and events.  Even many aging churches, aware that kids are their future, have become more open to tweaking traditional services and music to prevent their children from “aging out”.  Countless pastors have hired consultants and purchased books written by “experts” offering church rejuvenation strategies.
