Something made me think of an article I read a couple of years ago about the marks of a growing church. The marks were found by Adrian Rogers, a pastor in Memphis, Tenn., and Ed Young, a pastor in Houston. Here are the marks they found:
1) They were strongly led by their pastors.
2) They were strong Bible churches.
3) They were good-time churches.
4) They were churches in unity.
5) Each church had an indomitable spirit of conquest.
