What type of ship is your church? Cruise ship, fishing boat, battleship, or what?

Every boat has a purpose and reason to exist. Some are for entertainment, some are for secret war missions, and others are for turning a profit by catching fish. Houseboats, submarines, pirate ships, and lifeboats. Each have their reason for floating.

The same is true for a church – while the church theoretically exists for God’s outlined purpose in scripture, they go about it differently. Some use entertainment to get it done. Some use a battleship and weapons to get it done. Some streamline to be effective at it as possible to turn a profit. Yet others simply serve to be a life saver.

Question is – what type of ship is your church most like? What ship would you like it to function more like? Why?
