'We Love You Too Much to Open Our Doors': Andy Stanley Shares Why His Church Won't Reopen until 2021

 

In a rare interview spree, megachurch pastor Andy Stanley of North Point Ministries is speaking out on his church’s decision to not gather until 2021 in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Stanley made the announcement earlier this week and the decision made international news headlines, according to Christianity Today . For Stanley, creating certainty in the midst of a confusing crisis can give church members a path forward. “I announced to our churches that we would not be meeting publicly for the next three Sundays. Some pastors called and said, ‘What do you know that we don’t?’ I said, ‘I don’t know anything you don’t. I just know that clarity in the midst of uncertainty is the way forward,’” Stanley said on the Stetzer Leadership Podcast. The Atlanta-based pastor also recognized that his church staff was spending their limited resources and energy to create a service for only 20% of the congregation when that time could be redirected to creating an online community that could reach nearly all of them. “… This is really my mission decision. It’s not based on emotion. It’s on point with our mission to inspire people to follow Jesus. It’s a very outsider-focused decision instead of an insider-focused decision,” he said. Stanley and his leadership surveyed their congregations across multiple campuses to get a pulse on member’s feelings about gathering together again. The megachurch pastor made clear that he didn’t make this decision in isolation. The surveys showed that a decreasing number of people were willing to attend church during the pandemic. “We don’t want to accidentally do something harmful to our community while gathering a whole lot of people.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
