A Church Growing in Numbers

How will Jackson County Baptist Church grow in numbers, what is termed, be built up? The main goal for church growth is evangelism. That’s why we’re here. We are not here to pull people from other churches. We want to see other people saved. There are other churches here. I didn’t come here to recruit people from other churches, and I haven’t. We have many, many people here in this valley, something around 220,000 people. In my experience already, a large majority do not know the gospel. We want them to learn it. I don’t know all of what is going on, but I don’t see us running into people out there that are preaching a true gospel in an active way. We want to build up the church through evangelism. That is God building up this church. This is also going to come through making disciples. We spend time with the people we evangelize, so that they can evangelize and reproduce themselves, that is, develop strong Christians through the Word of God. However, we are also going to grow from getting people from other churches. That is not a contradiction. We are here because we believe we need to be here. If the other churches were what we believed that they should be, we would not be here. We would recommend those churches. People from other churches need to be in our church, especially those who either preach a false gospel, preach false doctrine, or participate in false worship. Many churches are pandering to the flesh of those in this area. We want people from those churches too.
