Is Church Membership Falling?


According to the media, the church is failing. Is that true? Here's what the Bible teaches.

The big story today is all about the decline in church membership.

U.S. Church Membership Falls Below Majority for First Time

Now, if this is true, what does that mean to God’s true church?

Absolutely nothing!

God is clear in Matthew 16:18 “I will build my church, and the gates of hell will not overpower it.”

So what gives?

God’s true church is His elect. Nothing can stop that. False churches come and go, as do false believers and believers in false religions.

Psalm 89:4 “I will establish your seed forever and build up your throne from generation to generation.”

How utterly vain to think the world, Satan, or any other power is reducing the growth of the church of God as God has providentially planned. Mankind and Satan have about as much power over the true church as they do over the climate.

So the next time you hear that church membership is dwindling, you can smile and respond, yes, but not the true church of Jesus Christ.
