  • 1:35 PM BubbaSmith – There are 3 questions in II Kings 7 the church must answer: 1.) Are we willing to embrace change?
  • 1:35 PM BubbaSmith – The gospel doesn’t change, but the church has to!
  • 1:37 PM BubbaSmith – The only excuse the church has for not reaching people is an unwillingness to change
  • 1:39 PM BubbaSmith – Every church in America is one or two changes away from seeing double their growth and seeing a move of God

  • 1:41 PM BubbaSmith – If you play the organ, we’re glad you’re here, but we have nothing for you
  • 1:42 PM BubbaSmith – The only reason people are unwilling to change is because they’re married to an idea instead of being married to Jesus
  • 1:43 PM BubbaSmith – Some churches need to die..they have a choice – change or die
  • 1:45 PM BubbaSmith – If what is going on at your church is manageable – it isn’t a move of God – you can’t plan a move of God – it just happens
  • 1:47 PM BubbaSmith – Someone: “Newspring is the church where sinners go” Perry: “Dang straight- they’re all on staff!”
  • 1:51 PM BubbaSmith – “How to you teach your church to give?” You have to teach it! “But what if people leave?” The only people that will leave are the people not giving! The only people that get mad when you preach about adultery are… think about it
  • 1:52 PM BubbaSmith – Our staff got mad when we had to start doing PO’s… “We didn’t have to do them before” – Thats because we didn’t have any freakin money before!

  • 2:04 PM BubbaSmith – People have used prayer as an excuse for inactivity… whether it’s loosing weight or anything else
