Bigger is Better?

I was raised in a small church (ca. 75-80 people), spent 12 years in megachurch (ca. 5000 people), and now pastor a small church (ca. 100 people). I say this so you will know that I don’t hate large churches since I spent 12 years (and taught) in one.

Contrary to what some think, I don’t believe that smaller churches are necessarily better (more holy, more right, more healthy) than large churches just because they are small. Rarely will you hear someone claim that they are better because there are very few who believe this.

I also don’t believe larger churches are necessarily better (more holy, more right, more healthy) than large churches just because they are large. I point this out because there are many who do believe this. Those who believe this are misguided.
