Biblical Church Growth: How You Can Work with God to Build a Faithful Church

Biblical Church Growth: How You Can Work with God to Build a Faithful Church

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.

How God Makes the World A Better Place: A Wesleyan Primer on Faith, Work, and Economic Transformation

How God Makes the World A Better Place: A Wesleyan Primer on Faith, Work, and Economic Transformation

Today we are all too well acquainted with a view of work and economics as necessary evils—means to an end. Our culture shouts its disapproval of work as bothersome, if necessary. It is conflicted over competing economic views and challenges the notion that one system can be better than all the rest. Even in the church the importance of work and economics can be undermined or dismissed. But what if we took great joy in our work? What if we began to develop an economic vision that reflects God’s own design? In How God Makes the World a Better Place David Wright and his team challenge teachers, preachers, and business leaders to use their influence to create, maintain, and affirm communities that value work and that value the systems that make work possible and rewarding for the most people. They are urged to inspire in others the dignity of labor and achievement that leads to real meaning and satisfaction. They must ensure that the world creates economic, legal, and organizational structures that enable work that truly will make the world a better place. As the authors look back in time, many of the principles they outline are drawn directly from the lives of John and Charles Wesley—two devoted ministers of the gospel who took their work seriously as a tool for serving God.

James: How Faith Works (God's Word for Today)

James: How Faith Works (God's Word for Today)

Each study in the God s Word for Today series provides an in-depth exploration of a book of the Bible. Each session includes: background information on the book of the Bible, its author, audience, occasion, and purpose; learning experiences that promote exciting and challenging discussions; notes for leaders that answer questions, suggest a learning process, and provide additional information; and discussion starters that help participants apply God s Word to their daily lives. (13 sessions) How Faith Works provides us with an insight into the relationship between faith and works. Often we are tempted to say that it is not really important what we believe but that we do good for others. Others try to pull us in the opposite direction: it is not what we do that counts but only that we believe the right things. James in his epistle sets the record straight.

Providence & Prayer : How Does God Work in the World?

Providence & Prayer : How Does God Work in the World?

Recipient of an Honourable Mention in the 2001 God Uses Ink Contest! "Lord, please give me a parking space!" That prayer sounds right on your third time around the block, frustrated and late for an appointment. But is it consistent with how God works in the world? Does prayer change God's mind or only our feelings? Does God do things because we ask him to? Or do we ask him because he prompts us to do so? How much control does God really have in the world, anyway? If he has given us free will, can he always guarantee that things will happen as he intends or wishes? Is our need for parking spaces important enough to bother God, or is he only concerned about things that advance his program of salvation? If God has already decided how things will turn out, what use is it to pray? On the other hand, if our freedom limits God's ability to achieve his wishes all the time, how much could he do even if we asked for help? How much does God know about the future, and how does this factor into the way our prayers affect the outcome? And how does God's relationship to time enter into the whole equation? With such questions in mind, Terrance Tiessen presents ten views of providence and prayer--and then adds an eleventh, his own. He describes each view objectively and then tackles the question,...

The Life of King David: How God Works Through Ordinary Outcasts and Extraordinary Sinners

The Life of King David: How God Works Through Ordinary Outcasts and Extraordinary Sinners

The Life of King David is a narrative re-telling and fourth-wall-breaking commentary of the most famous king in history. From unknown nobody to overnight celebrity, from champion of the people to a royal sinner: each chapter is wrapped in theology, philosophy, application, and the genre thrill of literary fiction. It's David's life as you've never heard it before.King David is one of the most fascinating figures in the Bible, if not throughout history. He's the epitome of rags to riches, the sprightly underdog, a simple man in extraordinary circumstances. Then there's the dark side of David -- his awful affair with a married woman and the subsequent murder of her husband. But no one ever takes it too hard on David. It's probably because he's not much different than us. We see ourselves in him.We'll find not only the depth of our own vices and value, but the God who is at the center of this drama, beckoning us home to be the people we were meant to be.It's David's story. It is our story.

Quantum God: How Life Really Works

Quantum God: How Life Really Works

If Quantum God were a Who, God would not be the judgmental, biased, and sometimes malicious Old Man in the Sky many of us grew up with, but rather the All where everything is possible and pulsating with potential. If Quantum God were a What, God might be the fabric that connects every idea, every desire, every personality, and everything in a pulsating, energetic, ever-Becoming Whole. If Quantum God were a Where, God could be the Higgs-Boson "God Particle" upon which angels dance or an "everywhere" with ever-burgeoning dimensions well beyond our comprehension of the universe as we know it. If Quantum God were a Why, God would exist because creativity cannot be contained or restrained, but seeks free-flowing expression, expanding in waves and ripples of idea-become-event. Yet Quantum God may be most like a How-the how behind everything we know and "laws" we can only guess at, the how that lays the groundwork for miracles as commonplace occurrences and composes a theme from the frequency (or vibration) of joy. Quantum God: How Life Really Works sheds light on the misconceptions that limit us and offers insights that can free us to be the true powers we really are, seemingly magical beings who create with godlike abilities. When we understand the invisible workings of the universe, ...
