Dr. Tony Evans examines the goal of the Christian church. The goal of every church should be greater than its number of attendees. God measures the success of a ministry by the maturing process of those under the ministry. Maturity can be tested by this simple question: are we consistently living to please ourselves, or are we consistently living to please Christ?
