Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Proverbs 29:18 KJV
When any organization, especially a church, lacks vision for the future, the group is going to go into decline.
But how do you know if your church is going into decline? Before any church goes financially bankrupt it will first go spiritually, socially, and emotionally bankrupt.
Russ Ewell and friends discuss seven signs that a church may be going into decline: when entertainment replaces inspiration, compromise replaces conviction, rules replace relationships, behavior replaces heart, insularity replaces innovation, attachment to the past replaces vision for the future, and managers replace leaders.
