 Christians Need to Quit Dating the Church and Commit to Its Mission

Christians Need to Quit Dating the Church and Commit to Its Mission

  • WRITTEN BY RUSS JONES, CHRISTIAN NEWS SERVICE

A North Carolina pastor believes too many Christians are disconnected from the body of Christ and don’t have a ministry to call their own. 

Pastor David McGee is the founder and senior pastor at The Bridge Church in Kernersville, North Carolina. Pastor McGee's goal for The Bridge is to remain simple and true – to reach people and teach them the Bible, until the whole world hears.

He says Christians need to quit dating the Church and commit to its mission.

“A lot of people approach church like they approach relationships,” said David McGee, founder and senior pastor at The Bidge Church in Kernersville, North Carolina. “There is no commitment. It’s like – I’ll go here and if it works out then great, but if at any time I get offended or uncomfortable or called upon to think about anyone other than myself then I’ll walk away.”

McGee encourages believers to get involved in a local church. He explains that only five to eight percent of any given churches membership is active in ministry.

“We’ve got Christians who are saved, but not really committed to the body of Christ,” said McGee. “They ask themselves, “where’s the joy – I’m missing the joy.” Joy comes when you commit and you begin to love others.”

The Bridge Fellowship is a non-denominational church that grew out of the roots of Calvary Chapel movement. Since 2002 the church has grown from 15 people to a weekly attendance of over 2,500 people.
