REPENTANCE

Doctrine Dilution. Few churches in Cameroon will tell you what they believe and even dare to teach that to the members. Even non-Christians are much less likely to attend churches with weak doctrinal beliefs than those with strong ones. So let us ask God to forgive the church of our nation for such things.

Loss of Evangelistic Passion. Many senior pastors either don’t have or have lost their evangelistic passion. Congregations tend to follow the passions and visions of those in key leadership positions, particularly the pastor. Let pray that the Lord will have mercy on the church of our nation for the loss of Evangelistic passion

Failure to Be Relevant. Unfortunately, many churches in our nation are out of touch with the changing trends and values of today’s culture. Some churches, for certain, abandon many of the cardinal truths of the faith in their quest to be relevant to the community they serve. But even more churches are woefully unaware of the realities, hopes, and pains of those around us. Failure to be true to doctrines of the Christian faith leads to apostasy. Failure to understand the world in which we live and serve leads to irrelevancy. This is an issue for real confession

Few Outwardly-Focused Ministries. Many churches seem to exist only for themselves. While there certainly should be ministry available for church members, often the balance between external and internal ministries is heavily skewed toward internal. When churches seek to care and minister only to their own, it’s a likely sign that decline is in motion and that death may be imminent.

Conflict over Personal Preferences. Some of the more vicious internal battles in congregations today are not fights over defending the great truths of the Christian faith. Instead, members have conflict over their preferred worship style, the way a room is painted or carpeted, and the type of pulpit the preacher uses. Battles like these are sure signs that members are more concerned about their needs than the needs of the hurting and unchurched people who live and work next to them.

The Priority of Comfort. Many churches are in definitive patterns of decline because church members simply will not move beyond their couches of comfort. It’s much easier to do things the way we’ve always done them, rather than to get uncomfortable in the world outside the walls of the church.

Biblical Illiteracy. Very few churches even attempt to provide a way for their members to understand Genesis to Revelation; therefore, biblical illiteracy is the natural result. And biblical illiteracy means that our churches may not be obedient to the calls of Scripture because they don’t know what the Bible says.
