The UCG admitted today that their church has not grown over the last several years. This is a well known fact. None of the COG's are growing (except for COG7). All any of them do is poach members from other COG's to increase their numbers. Worldly pagans are just not interested in their message of law, doom, damnation and death. All of the COG's still are living in the 1950-1980's. They cannot for some reason repackage their messages. They cannot move into the 21st century and find relevance with humanity.
We have a tremendous library of literature, but the problem is that we have not grown in membership. We must have a peaceful environment before we can expect growth, but we must also find ways to progressively engage those who learn about God’s truth through our efforts. Our present ladder of involvement from first contact to baptized member has some broken rungs on it. Call it “Operation Broken Rung,” but we must fix that progression of engaging to teaching to converting those new who God is calling.
