Product Description

Avoid a "revolving door" syndrome by nurturing Biblical Church Growth. Shunning one-size-fits-all approaches that often lend only temporary "success," ministry professor and church consultant Gary McIntosh points to effective evangelism as the basis for increasing membership. Drawing on biblical models, current statistics, and professional experience, he offers 10 principles for both large and small congregations to build strong foundations for sustained vitality.

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.
