Drawing a Crowd is not the same as building a church.
To draw a crowd we simply need to provide
that which is attractive and appealing to the general public.
However, to build a church we must evangelize souls for Christ
and must disciple converts to follow after Christ in daily living
and to be transformed by Christ in heart character,
doing all through the power of God the Holy Spirit.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets;
and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry,
for the edifying of the body of Christ:
till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God,
unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.
My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you.
To whom God would make known
what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles;
which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom;
that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 2:11-12
As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you,
as a father doth his children,
that ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.
Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem:
and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch.
Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad,
and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.
And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many,
they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,
confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith,
and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
Acts 20:20-21, 26-28, 31-32
And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you,
but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house,
testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks,
repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.
For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock,
over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers,
to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
Therefore watch, and remember,
that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace,
which is able to build you up,
and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
