I just read this Detroit News story about Massachusetts and how New Englanders have turned away from religion and from God. Conservative Christian denominations see it as a mission field ripe for attention. The story points to a new church plant, Redeemer Fellowship Church in Watertown, Mass. as a new church plant in this mold.
How about Michigan? How strong is belief in God in Michigan? Have people embraced their faith during these difficult economic times or have they set it aside? How many people have no exposure to God at all? How many have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ?
Should the Great Lakes State be considered a mission field?
Perhaps we need some missionaries to be sent here from Africa or India or from the Far East.
