Does Your Area Need A Church

More and more people are realizing the need for new churches all over America. For many years there has been a need in the northeast and the inner cities. Over the last sixty years our cities have been abandoned for the suburbs and as a consequence churches have moved to the suburbs leaving the inner cities desolate. About half of the population of the United States lives in our cities and yet the cities have the fewest fundamental churches. The northeast, the west coast and many cities along our major river communities are without a fundamental church. The need for new churches is growing.
Most people realize there are regions of our country that are in desperate need of churches however a new phenomenon is occurring in that many of our traditionally conservative midwest and southern communities are needing new churches. This is a result of churches changing their standards and trying to appeal to the community using carnal methods. In addition, immigrants are pouring into the United States and can be found in every corner of the country. Consider also that the population of the United States has doubled since 1955 and yet the number of churches has remained stagnant while the existing churches are anemic. 
America is rapidly becoming a humanistic society as we head down the road previously trod by Europe. American churches as a whole are smaller and less sound in doctrine. We have a whole generation that is need of the gospel and we must have more laborers to start more churches.
