Longevity = Close to God’s Heart?

Does the continued existence of a particular church, organization or ministry mean that it is close to God’s heart?

I was going to say that I think that the answer to your question depends on factors other than longevity. But then I thought about something. If a church has been “there” for a long time, what does it say about the people who make up the church.

I know some churches that were in existence for a long time but who are on the verge of closing because there is no left. The interest in caring for the building left little time for caring about God and those that cared about God and doing what God wanted left. At some point in time, the church will die.

On the other hand, a church where God is the heart of the church means that the mission is transferred from generation to generation is one that is going to last a long time.
