Notes & Transcripts

Look out America! There’s a new church movement rising across the country, and guess what they all have in common? They all don’t believe in God! Yes, the growth of atheist churches and even atheist mega-churches are becoming more and more popular as people want the warm feelings of a church experience they grew up with, just without God. Sanderson Jones, one of the leaders of Sunday Assembly in Los Angeles, said, "There was so much about it (referencing a Christian church’s Christmas caroling event) that I loved, but it's a shame because at the heart of it, it's something I don't believe in," Jones said. "If you think about church, there's very little that's bad. It's singing awesome songs, hearing interesting talks, thinking about improving yourself and helping other people — and doing that in a community with wonderful relationships. What part of that is not to like?" Atheist churches, like Jones’ Sunday Assembly, continue to grow in America.

Even those who don’t believe in God understand the power and draw of things He ordains. Singing songs, talking meaningfully to one another, caring for one another, being in a committed community, and doing works of charity to our neighbors; these activities are attractive to everyone. The reason why is because these activities represent who God is and the expression of Himself through his human creation. The only problem is that these atheistic churches leave the original source out of it. –Jim L. Wilson & Peter Lee

Acts 2:42-47 (HCSB) And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to the prayers. (43) Then fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being performed through the apostles. (44) Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. (45) They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as anyone had a need. (46) Every day they devoted themselves ⌊to meeting⌋ together in the temple complex, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with a joyful and humble attitude, (47) praising God and having favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to them those who were being saved.
