New Poll: Local Church?

On an email discussion list I subscribe to, a really interesting question came up in regards to the purpose and function of a local church.

The gist of the question is this:

Are churches for believers, or unbelievers?

In operation, should the local church be primarily geared toward feeding the flock, or reaching the lost?

I thought it was a really good question for a new poll & your thoughts. So, there ya go :-) See the new poll in the sidebar and feel welcome to explain in the comments, why you voted the way you did!

THIS POLL IS NOW CLOSED - HERE ARE THE RESULTS:

What is the PRIMARY function of the local church?

To equip the saints - 28 votes (75%)
Saints first, then the lost - 5 votes (13%)
Equal for both - 4 votes (10%)
