The Purpose Driven, Seeker Sensitive, User Friendly approach to church design and operation constitutes a willful rejection of the design and command of the Lord Jesus Christ for His Church. The church model and church growth methods employed and encouraged by Rick Warren and Bill Hybels promote a gross departure from the clear teaching of the Scriptures. In this message we expose the departure and call the church to stand firm on the faith once for all delivered to the saints. May the truth bring us into sweet submission to Christ our King.
Great Sermon! Once again, Pastor Chuck speaks much needed truth! Your messages are a great blessing to true believers.

This is a wake up call to the church! Thank you for exposing the false teaching of the popular church growth proponents. Rick Warren is just the latest and most popular flavor of this vain philosophy of man. Thank you for remaining true to our Lord and preaching the truth 'in season and out of season.' The Purpose Driven church very effectively and subtly exchanges the truth of God for the lie, and quenches the Spirit in the local group of believers, if the philosophy is adopted.

Great Sermon! May God bless Pastor Chuck O'Neal for boldly proclaiming the truths of God's word. I have been so convicted and challenged by them that I will probably listen to every one on this site. I've already listened to several. I'm even recommending the God's Church, God's Way series to my own pastor. May God strengthen Pastor O'Neal and the Walker Road church to continue their work in His kingdom.

Best Sermon Ever This sermon continues to bless our lives. This is one of the most important sermons we have heard. It hurts our hearts that so many are being mis lead. We encourage all to listen to this rich and super teaching from God's Word and how to do things God's way and not man's. Praise God.
Pastor Chuck O'Neal you did a fabulous job in teachig the truth to all of us. We look forward to more teaching from your sermons.

Wonderful Exposee! A wonderful message on the church growth movement's connection to Robert Schuller, and revealing details surrounding the the movement, such as enforced egalitarianism. So many people who should know better are being duped with Rick Warren's book(s), and it's beyond infuriating. Thank you for this sermon and thank you for taking a stand, Pastor O'Neal!
