Ed Stetzer has an important observation that congregations seeking to be the best church FOR their community need to take seriously. – STEVE

BY ED STETZER

All churches love certain things. Some love fellowship, some worship, some prayer. Those are good loves. Some are neutral loves. Some are not. Other churches love their building, their history or their strategy.

Those can be good or bad, depending on what we mean by love and how we value those things. But some things that churches love hurt their mission and hinder their call. Here are three I’ve observed from my work with thousands of churches.

 1. Too many churches love past culture more than their current context.

2. Too many churches love their comfort more than their mission.
