„As I looked at the deaths of fourteen churches, I saw a common pattern. Obedience to the Great Commission faded; it usually faded gradually…”

„It was like the slow erosion described in chapter. The efforts at obedience to the Great Commission faded gradually, so that no one noticed. Or if someone did notice, he or she was largely ignored. The more vocal members usually left the church. The comfortable members remained behind for the deathwatch…”

„But here’s the bigger issue . Even if the church began to grow on its own, the members of the dying church would only accept the growth if the new members were like them and if the church would continue to „do church” the way they wanted it…”
