Why is the Church Facing a Credibility Crisis?

According to a recent Gallup Study, in 2020, 47% of U.S. adults belonged to a church, synagogue or mosque. That’s down from 50% in 2018 and 70% in 1999. This is the first time in eight-decades it’s dropped below 50%. Younger people are far more likely to claim no religious preference.

Why is this the case? Why is the church facing a credibility crisis? How can we overcome the cultural pressure we’re facing and model the early church as we see in Acts?

Tyler walks through seven marks of the early church, and how those characteristics allowed them to remain a faithful witness to Jesus amidst persecution.
