I know a writer, apostle (Dag-Heward) in Ghana who wrote a book "the mega-church" in which he wrote, "the mega-church had one member. what is refered here in Africa with Megachurch, is churches that teach the full (mega) gospel= if you'r looking for a mega church in that way you'l probably end up in a small housegroup with a stubborn minister who refuses to compromise, and that is the real MEGA CHURCH, noit their natural size but their spiritual deepness. yet of course some might be very big in members as well, i do not refuse

If 2,500 people make up a mega church then the first church was a mega church. It had 3,000 people. it is call Pentecost. then it went to 5,000 "an abomination" sarcasism. I would redefine a mega-church as a church in which all of the people of a community have a church home. Then you can call yourself mega. Most communities have between 60 to 80% of people do not have a home weekly attended church.

I have tried these outfits and they all seem to dwell on one thing:

The BIGGER The Numbers, The BETTER.

Seems more like a Political or Academic contest than a time to celebrate GOD and all that HE has done for us.

Jesus Christ didn't have this all-consuming concern with:

How many people came to his meeting
How much $$$ those people donated
How many people came back to the next meeting
etc. etc.

Instead, Jesus Christ was concerned with EACH and EVERYONE's heart. Quite a difference from what Mega-Churches teach!

For mega churches looking for mega - bucks, & preaching very little gospel..
---Lawrence on 1/6/11

Some preach the gospel, but not many...because the GOSPEL teaches about SIN, which is not attractive to a great many people. If "church growth" becomes more important than "growth of the Kingdom", that church is to be avoided.

The teachings that grow great mega churches tend to be what makes people feel GOOD about THEMSELVES...Faith teaching, positive thinking, new age guided imagination etc.

Mega churches are good for select smaller groups: singles, widowed/divorced, career oriented, dieters, Al-anon etc. One church I attended had a group for procrastinators. Just what I needed! (but I never got around to attending.)

The question should be, "What makes this church grow?" Is it Jesus?

In the USA, many large, or mega, churches have taken advantage of the current economic conditions. Lower construction costs led to many large building projects.

Where I live, many of these churches now seem to be pleading for more $$$. Their congregations aren't giving enough to cover the construction bills.

Funny how many of these mega-churches preach the "prosperity" gospel and then poke attendees when they run short of cash.

Sounds like they should have read, and followed, the advice in Luke 14:18 --

For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?

You may be attending a mega-church without knowing it.
Todays' definition of Mega-church... if your church has 2500+ members, you belong to a mega-church.
It's an uninformed question to ask, "What do Mega-churches teach?" Mega-churches cross all denominational lines including Catholics and non-denominations.
The first question should always be, "What do I and my church(big or small) teach and believe?" And, "What part is truth and what part of that is not truth."
The attitude behind the blog questions hints of pre-judging and general labeling without specific knowledge of each individual church that would fall into this mega-church category. And there are a vast amount that are in the category.

Mega Churches are abominations like those mentioned in 1 Corinthians 3:1-4.
---Rob on 1/5/11

And just how many mega churchs have you visited in person to arrive at this fallacious conclusion?

You lump our own Lord and savior Jesus Christ in that category. Just how many people DID he preach to at one time in one location? I seem to remember some number like 5,000 at least.

The so-called mega church I attend has a solid statement of faith based upon sound Biblical foundations, and has over 400 SMALL groups of 8-15 people that meet weekly in private homes for intense Bible study - much like the NT church did.

Mega Churches are abominations like those mentioned in 1 Corinthians 3:1-4.

They intentionaly keep people on milk and not solid food.

They do this to keep people drawn to themselves instead of equiping people and sending them out into the world to share the Gospel of Christ Jesus.

mega church taught me that dunkin' donuts are not the only ones who sell danishes and donuts at a ridiculous price.

i learned that i do not have to settle in my theater chair until the "praise and worship" team is done praising and worshiping themselves, and i can sip on coffee louder than speaker can speak and nobody says a word.

anyway, you can buy what they just said on DVD or you can download it on your mp3 while on your way to Cracker-barrel or a football game.

Acts 17:

24 "God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands,"

25 "Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things."
