Churches often ask the question how can we grow, what do we need to do to reach more people. The answer is multi-faceted, but one thing sorely missing in many churches is the evidence of genuine worship.

Rory Noland states in his book The Worshiping Artist, “Whenever Christ is lifted up, believers and unbelievers alike are drawn to him.”  There should be something for non-believers to feel, see, sense in our corporate worship time that draws others to Christ.  If there isn’t, that is perhaps the best place to start toward becoming an evangelistic church.
