Product Description

The early believers of Jesus Christ knew that they were not just members of an organization, nor were they just an extension of Old Testament Judaism. They knew that they were followers of the living Lord Jesus Christ. They were members of a thing called the church. Through the centuries, the church has been the most powerful transforming force in history. Yet in America many observe it as anemic and powerless.

Author Elmer Towns contends that there is good news; there are many things that are still right with the church. What Is Right with the Church affirms the positive things that are present in the church today and what will carry it forward as a transforming force. This book is not a defense of the traditional church, nor does it run to embrace all new forms of worship. Rather, this book examines the biblical nature of church, allowing the best to come forth. It is not a book about old churches, new churches, or home churches. It is a book about what is right about every true church, no matter the expression, history, or culture.

A growing number of people are not aware of the enduring strengths of the church. The author contends that if believers in Christ are to effectively move forward with healthy communities and a vibrant faith in this new century, they must be established on foundational, biblical truths and core values. And when this happens, the church thrives as a transforming force.
