Do you just have loyal members at your church, or are there raving fans who gladly invite their friends? What kind of church are you?

Key Points:

  1. When you use big “stained glass” words in your preaching, be sure to explain what they mean in simple terms.
  2. Be careful to take away all of the insider vs. outsider language.
  3. Help people know where to turn in their Bibles.

Bible Text:

1 Corinthians 14:9 It’s the same for you. If you speak to people in words they don’t understand, how will they know what you are saying? You might as well be talking into empty space.
