It has been this author’s observation that over the last decade, there has been an obvious decrease in the number of revival meetings being conducted by Southern Baptist Churches (SBC) in Texas. Therefore, this topic was chosen because there seems to be a correlation between the decline of the membership and baptisms of Southern Baptist churches and the number of revivals that are being conducted. The potential value of this topic is that once the facts are discovered, this author hopes to encourage pastors and churches to bring back revivals to reach people with the gospel. This subject will be approached by taking a survey among Texas Southern Baptist churches that will show the correlation mentioned above. Using books that show the importance on revivals, this author will present steps that will benefit those wanting to revive revivals.
