Good Morning Church Members and Guests

Win Arn, a leading church consultant, conducted a survey:  He surveyed members of nearly a thousand churches asking the question, “Why does the church exist?

Of the church members surveyed, 89 percent said, The church’s purpose is to take care of my family’s and my needs.  For many, the role of the pastor is simply to keep the sheep who are already in the “pen” happy and to not “lose” too many of them.  Only 11 percent said, The purpose of the church is to win the world for Jesus Christ.

May our church here at Temple Baptist be like that 11 percent – ready to share our testimony to those who are without hope and on their way to a literal hell for all eternity.  

Why not stop by the Welcome Center in the lobby and pick up a few Bridge tracts and cards on your way out.

Share Christ with someone this week.
