WINDOWS OF HEAVEN CHRISTIAN CHURCHGod Is Always in Our Midst

Eight reasons people are leaving denominational churches for non-denominational churches

1. Denominational churches have a negative reputation. Some respondents used the phrase “negative brand” to communicate this reason.

2. Denominations are known more for what they are against than what they are for.

3. There are too much infighting and politics in denominations.

4. The denominational churches are too liberal. From what I can tell from these respondents, they are current and former members

of mainline churches.

5. There is a general  of institutional loyalty in institutions such as denominations.

6. Denominations have inefficient systems and organizations. They are too bureaucratic.

7. Some of the respondents could see no perceived benefit to belonging to denominations.

8. Denominations are not good stewards of their financial resources.
