Publisher's Description

Every pastor wants to have a vibrant, dynamic church. There are many popular models for church growth based on outstanding churches led by outstanding pastors. But unfortunately, specific models are temporary and go out of style quickly. Author Gary McIntosh explores the biblical principles for church growth and applies them to today's culture. Instead of concentrating on the ephemeral how of church growth, he focuses on the unchanging why.
McIntosh defines church growth as "all that is involved in bringing men and women who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ into fellowship with him and into responsible church membership." In other words, church growth is effective evangelism, not a methodology for increasing membership. According to Biblical Church Growth, growing churches always evidence a desire to fulfill the Great Commission by cooperating with God in building a faithful church.
Using personal stories and current statistics as well as numerous biblical examples, the author sets forth ten basic principles that provide an eternal foundation for helping any church-large or small-achieve lasting vitality and growth.

    Without a doubt, THE finest book on church growth (true church growth) I've ever read. This is not a "methods" book designed to give you the latest ideas but a "foundations" book outlining 9 key "principles" that must be evident in ANY method you use to see real, sustained growth. In each chapter, McIntosh gives you some questions designed to spur your own ideas from each principle. Whether your service is "traditional", "contemporary" or anything in between, this book will help you take a good look at what you're doing and see if it really has any lasting meaning for the growth of God's kingdom and praising His wonderful name.This, along with Steve Rummage's book on "Planning your Preaching" are the two best books I've read in a long, long time. Pick this one up...
