Why join a small church?

We live in an age which tells us that only what is big is significant, only what attracts mass audiences is influential, only those who can deploy vast resources of cash or people are truly powerful. It is easy for us to fall into accepting this secular propaganda. What appears pint-sized and weak is written off. We can end up hoping that whatever happens, and whatever he asks of us, God doesn’t call us to a small church.

John Benton

But, of course, the Bible teaches us a very different set of guidelines from that of the secular world. It teaches us that the unseen God is actually sovereign over all we see. It teaches us that ‘nothing is impossible with God’ (Luke 1.37). If we are part of a small church we will need encouragement to grasp these truths and live by them. This can be a struggle.
