Many times, when I go for evangelism, before I even start preaching to someone, they will ask me what church I attend. I always wondered why they were so interested in knowing my church before they listen to me. Now I know why.
I have discovered that a lot of people who don’t even go to church, will accept or reject your message based on the church you attend.
You see, many unchurched people actually know your church and the drama that goes on there. These days, the details of the lives of pastors are displayed on social media and on every news channel. Sinners know your pastor and they have an opinion about him/her.
You do not want someone to reject the message of salvation or blatantly refuse to listen to you because of the church you attend.
Don’t preach church, preach Christ Crucified. 1 Corinthians 1:23. You do not want a sinner to think he is going to Heaven because he is a member of your church. Then when he gets to eternity, he will be told, “…I don’t know you.”
If you may, only give information about your church if the person asks you or after you have led the person to Christ.
Remember that Jesus is not coming back to take only your denomination to Heaven but to take everyone everywhere who names the name of the Lord and has departed from iniquity. 2 Timothy 2:19.
