Product Description

The church that Jesus established is meant to embrace and welcome all who want to be followers of Christ. Belong invites readers to dialogue with three ministry practitioners who are calling the church to return to its true identity as the body of Christ and its vocation to model our life together after our crucified and risen Lord.

This book is not a "surefire method" to enhance church growth or yet another failproof evangelism tool. Reorienting the missing of the church can be painful and uncomfortable, but its purpose is to form a radically welcoming body where, with Jesus as the head, lives are transformed and hearts are set on God. Join Crocker, Kester, and Lobdell in reviving an ancient vision for the people of God to cultivate a community where everyone can Belong.

Publisher's Description

While conversion is always a personal experience, discipleship never is. The church that Jesus established is meant to embrace and welcome all who want to be followers of Christ. Belong invites readers to dialogue with three ministry practitioners who are calling the church to return to its true identity as the body of Christ and its vocation to model our life together after our crucified and risen Lord. This book is not a surefire method to enhance church growth or yet another failproof evangelism tool. Reorienting the mission of the church can be painful and uncomfortable, but its purpose is to form a radically welcoming body where, with Jesus as the head, lives are transformed and hearts are set on God. Join Crocker, Kester, and Lobdell in reviving an ancient vision for the people of God to cultivate a community where everyone can Belong.
