Church Growth Strategies or The Gospel?

I have noticed a couple of local Baptist churches have adopted several church growth strategies in order to attract people into the church. It's like a blueprint that seems to be spreading. Some of these strategies include a name change, different types of community involvement, aesthetic improvements, etc.. Not that any of these things are inherently bad, but they are worldly efforts and strategies to increase numbers and hence produce false converts. John MacArthur explains how the transcendence of the Gospel to change lives through the power of the Spirit grew the early church and is the same means today by which it must grow.
