Being a small church is not necessarily a vice. Sure, there will be challenges and difficulties, but God’s power to do great things can be
accomplished with few or with many. In fact, God often chooses to use the underdog to showcase His power! A numerically small church can be a
giant in faith and good works. A small church can still leave a big footprint in their community for Jesus!
However, don’t be deceived!
Being a small church is not necessarily more virtuous either. It’s not a badge of honor. Being small doesn’t guarantee that you are more faithful,
more holy, or that you are in a better position to grow. Many churches are small due to their own lukewarmness and inactivity. They are small
numerically because they are dwarfs in faith and good works. Their influence will be minimal, and their existence will be short lived. Their
attitudes and actions must radically change. The key is this — it’s not about the amount of people in the pews, but it is
about the amount of faith in the hearts of those in the pew. Whether we are few or many, let’s be people of great faith. God can do amazing things
with a people like that!
“Now unto him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory
in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all the ages, world without end. Amen” (Ephesians 3:20-21).
