What's More Important in a Church Building -- Function or Form
The preschool moved out a year or two ago, and now the building is just a church. No more moving furniture around on the weekends.
Those from older cities may be used to more traditional looking churches, but those building new churches often value function above form. Many churches believe their funds should be used for ministry rather than for expensive buildings. Some churches even look like warehouses and locate in industrial parks. They are designed to be ministry hubs, not ornate places of worship. Those who build them believe that where Christians meet together to worship, God is in their midst, no matter what form the building takes.
What do you think is most important? For a church to build an impressive sanctuary or to put its money into serving people? Or do you believe both are important?
