We all know the church is not a building; it’s the people. However, this cliche is only partially true. Mark Clifton and Thom Rainer break down this statement and why the building is important in revitalization.
- “The church is not a building; it’s the people” is both a cliche and only partially true.
- The church has to gather somewhere.
- Communities are impacted by church buildings.
- It’s a matter of good stewardship.
- Deficient buildings can be hazards to all and impediments to unbelievers.
Revitalize & Replant is sponsored by the North American Mission Board and ChurchReplanters.com. More than 10% of churches in North America are at risk of closing and the North American Mission Board is committed to reversing this trend by decreasing the death rate of existing churches while simultaneously increasing the birth rate of new churches. To learn more about what it means to become a replanting pastor or to explore resources for replanting and revitalization in your own church, visit ChurchReplanters.com.
