You be the boss – The US Church

You be the boss – The US Church

I have been reading Wall's "The Cross-Cultural Process in Christian History"

Walls analyzes Latourette’s definition of "expansion."  How do we know if a Christian movement is happening?  He provides three different “tests” in looking at it:

  1. The Church Test: Is there a spreading of new congregations?
  2. The Kingdom Test: What is the strength and depth of them movement – is it impacting people's lives and how?
  3. The Gospel Test:  How is Christianity affecting mankind as a whole?

So, lets rate the church in the USA.

If you were "the boss" of an organization charged with reaching the USA, how would you rate the three items above – not just for your organization, but the church movement in the USA as a whole?
