Why Churches Fail And How To Fix The Problem
We are frequently told that churches are failing because:
- People don’t want to hear the truth.
- Christians are back-sliding.
- People just want their fire insurance.
While some of those may be true to a degree, here’s the real reason most churches fail. They fail to invest more time talking about our identity in Christ, and instead they have turned their message in to a behavior improvement sermon. In this video we dig deeper and offer a solution that may help to save a failing church.

Mike Cynar grew up in church and observed that countless people would go to church and then just stop. The church always referred to them as ‘fake Christians’ or ‘backsliders’ but Mike discovered the problem was deeper. The problem was the church message. The message was 90% behavior improvement and how bad you are, with a pinch of who you are in Christ, It was like every sermon was being preached to the church of Corinth. It’s in the Baptist church, Catholic, Pentecost, and most every other church. After discovering the true gospel message and how we are made right with God because of what ‘Jesus did’ (not what ‘we do’) Mike set out to free believers from behavior improvement programs and bring them back to Jesus. The Result – Jesus Without Religion was launched.
