In When God Comes to Church (B&H Publishing), Steve Gaines talks about how the church can be revived through a renewed sense of the presence of God in worship. Gaines, who succeeded Adrian Rogers as senior pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, writes, “The need of the hour today is for our houses of worship to be filled once again with His presence. We must jettison our performance mentality, understanding that everything we do—every song we sing, every prayer we pray and every sermon we preach—is primarily for the Lord and His pleasure.”
