Earthshaking. Status-quo challenging. World transforming. That's what the church was intended to be.
"An excellent resource for energizing your local church..."
—Mike Slaughter, Author and Pastor Emeritus, Ginghamsburg Church, Dayton Ohio
Problems in the church are nothing new; the book of Acts is full of them. In We Are the Church..., Pevey offers encouragement that today's church can truly be a transformative presence in the world, just as the early church was in the book of Acts.
While some feel the church is a social club with little impact on the world, that very idea runs contrary to God's plan. In We Are the Church... Let's Act Like It, Pastor Linda Tower Pevey offers churches practical and biblical ways to live out their mandate to make disciples and make a positive impact on their community and the world.
We Are the Church... takes readers through a 7-week Bible study of the book of Acts, looking at what it means to be the world-changing church that Jesus Christ intended. The study guides readers through weekly topics that empower them to take action — Act with . . . Power, Generosity, Acceptance, Creativity, Perseverance, Courage, and Witness.
Energize your entire congregation by using We Are the Church... as a churchwide small-group study. A built-in Leader's Guide makes it easy to lead this book in a small-group or Bible-study setting. The book is also suitable for individual use. Expect to see your church energized and renewed by We Are the Church ... Let's Act Like It!
