Doctrine and the formerly unchurched

Thom Rainer, a teacher of evangelism at Southern Seminary in Louisville has done intensive study of people who were formerly unchurched. He wanted to know what it was that made the biggest difference in their becoming Christians and part of a church. To his suprise he learned that a church's doctrine and their stance toward it made a huge impact on them. When the content of the doctrine was matched with a seriousness toward it and seeing the people live it out, it makes a huge dufference.
