Product Description

Churches committed to following Christ's wish to see this world changed for the sake of eternity. What is the best way for a body of believers do its part in contribting to an environment where true spiritual transformation can occur? In Transformational Church, bestselling research authors Ed Stezer and Thom S. Rainer survey thousands of congregations to find that the most effective transformational churches are those who make disciples shaped by the Gospel. These disciples in turn, are key to engaging their culture surrounding them resulting in its ultimate transformation!

Publisher's Description

How are we doing? The church, that is. And how are we doing it? Congregations have long measured success by "bodies, budget, and buildings"--a certain record of attendance, the offering plate, and square footage. But the scorecard can't stop there. When it does, the deeper emphasis on accountability, discipleship, and spiritual maturity is lost. Ignoring those details, we see fewer lives transformed, Christian influence wane, and churches thin out--a situation that is all too familiar across North America today.

It is time to take heart and rework the scorecard.

According to Ed Stetzer and Thom S. Rainer, the authors of Transformational Church, "Too often we've highlighted the negative realities of the declining American church but missed the opportunity to magnify the God of hope and transformation."

Based on the most comprehensive study of its kind, including a survey of more than 7,000 churches and hundreds of on-site interviews with pastors, Transformational Church takes us to the thriving congregations where truly changing lives is the norm.

Stetzer and Rainer clearly confirm the importance of disciple making for all through active biblical engagement and prayerful dependence on God alongside of ever-increasing, intentional participation in mission and ministry activities. As the church engages these issues, the world will see the change:

* More people following Christ
 More believers growing in their faith
 More churches making an impact on their communities

The transformation starts now.
