It seems that increasing numbers of professing Christians in the West do not attend church. Church, to many, has become a place to go when it is convenient, to have one’s needs met. Examining what the Bible has to say about the church, Johnson shows why the local body of believers is an essential part of the life of every believer – and the role that each individual believer plays in the life of the church. This thought–provoking, challenging book will benefit every believer.
Terry L. Johnson
Terry Johnson is the senior minister of the Independent Presbyterian Church in Savannah, Georgia, which he has served since 1987.
… a compelling and exciting vision for the local church, for your local congregation. If you’re feeling sceptical and jaded about the church then this book will renew your enthusiasm. It will help you to see afresh that the ‘ordinary’ life of an ‘ordinary’ church is actual something extraordinary, filled with Christ’s supernatural presence and power.
Author and senior faculty member, Crosslands Training
This book will not only enhance your growth in grace but will become an instrument as you disciple others in Christ’s Church.

This book is a timely call to a Biblical understanding of what it means to belong to the body and bride of Christ, and the blessings that come from gathering physically as God’s people.
