Bigger is Better

     A "mega-church" is defined as any church with 4,500 or more persons in regular weekly attendance. This trend started back in the 70's with Willow Creek church in Chicago. Today we have Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church in Texas, Rick Warren and Saddleback church in California, just to name a few. But is this trend a good thing? Is it biblical? Is it "Christian?"   

Mega churches inhibit the personal relationship interaction of true Christian community.
