Evangelism = Church Growth

Here is a fun did you know fact. 

I recently conducted a little mathematical problem.  I was curious how big a church would be in five years if every member in the church actually fulfilled the great commission. 

I started with a church of 200.  Then I assumed that all of these members led 1 person to the Lord.  I then assumed that the church was able to retain 50% of these new converts.  If a church did this effectively, then this church of 200 would be a church of 1517 at the end of 5 years!  

Impossible you say? Well, in Acts 2 we are told that the Lord added to the number of believers every day.  Perhaps many people don’t get saved on a regular basis because the church of the modern era does not function how Christ originally intended it to.
