From Wikipedia:

A megachurch is a large church, frequently defined as having more than 2,000 worshippers for a typical weekly service.

Globally, these large congregations are a significant development in Protestant Christianity, challenging the roles of denominations as the primary sources of ministry resources and ministerial training. Most megachurches tend to be evangelical or pentecostal.

Yoido Full Gospel Church in Seoul, South Korea (with 780,000 members in 2003) is the largest church in the world. Other examples are Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia (15,000 attending each Sunday) as well as many megachurches in the United States, typically found in exurban areas of the Sun Belt.

Yes. There is one basically right front of my neighborhood.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 3/11/06 - 12:57:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think so.


That church looks amazing.

14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 3/11/06 - 12:58:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, the town I live in is too small for that.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/12/06 - 2:52:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
I dont think so. We just have loads of little ones. like SOO many churches.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/12/06 - 2:54:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, the biggest church in the area probably has 2,000 members, but they don't all show up at the same service.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/12/06 - 2:57:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, the Champions Forest Baptist church. I really don't like it either, it in no way resembles a church. You'd think it was an office building with a gym if you were just driving by.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/12/06 - 3:00:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
While I'm sure there are, I have no idea where they are.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/19/06 - 9:01:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm from Houston... we have the Second Baptist Church that has to use the old basketball arena as its venue
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/19/06 - 9:16:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, the largest has space for about 500 people.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/19/06 - 9:17:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think so, though we have tons of churches in our area, there's one every few blocks it seems.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 3/19/06 - 9:26:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd go there just to go there.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 3/29/06 - 5:09:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
I attend one, about 5,000 people. There is also 15,000 someodd one downtown, Lakewood Church, and they bought a stadium to do services in.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 3/29/06 - 5:11:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah, they just built a catholic one. I call it "churchmart".
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 3/29/06 - 5:13:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes its called Mt. Zion. There are two of them in the major counties in Nashville. They even have heli-pads on top
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 7/20/06 - 3:00:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, only people down south and in the midwest are dumb enough to get duped into attending those freakshows.
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 7/20/06 - 3:08:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
No megachurches in my area, thankfully.
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 7/20/06 - 3:28:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not that I know of. Not THAT big anyway. Sheesh, 15,000 people? 780, 000? That's more people than ever attended the big retreats I've been on!

I don't go into Protestant churches that often, though. But the Catholic church we went to in Florida was pretty big for a Catholic church.

14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/23/06 - 8:50:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, no megachurches here, but we do have a lot of churches in my town.
14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/23/06 - 8:52:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
i'd like to know what the attendances are around here. I imagine a few hundred would be 'mega' in Korea.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 9/13/06 - 5:15:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 9/13/06 - 6:33:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. F*cking creepy.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 9/18/06 - 4:56:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yep. I go to one. It doesn't really seem that big. It's an assemblies of God. It has a Christian school, coffee shop, cafe, bookstore, foyer with couches and chairs, and lots and lots of rooms. I love it.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 9/18/06 - 4:59:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, thank God. And Koreans aren't real Christians. From what I hear, it is just a fad to them, they don't really believe or understand it.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Monday 9/18/06 - 11:08:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm sure there are
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 9/19/06 - 12:16:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, there are small churches everywhere
