Jesus prayed for all his followers to love one another and live according to his ways---not their own---in order that the world might believe. Exploring this idea of unity, Dukes encourages you to overcome the "my church" mentality and unite with your family, neighbors, city, and other local churches to spread God's truth. 192 pages, softcover from New Hope.
Thinking beyond your church matters because the unity of the church is imperative in order for the work of God to happen in our city and in our world. And not just unity in the one local church family that you call your own. When all followers of Jesus actually love one another like Jesus loved us-- living according to His ways rather than our own-- then the world will see and, in turn, believe that Jesus was actually sent as the Son of God. This is the unity Jesus prayed for. It should be lived out among His followers and can only be present when God is the force holding us all together. In this new release by pastor Jason Dukes, you will explore this unity and discover how it can become part of the DNA of your local church expression.
