Imagine that the apostle Paul were to write a letter to your church -- much like those he wrote to the churches of his time. Would he begin by thanking God for your church's enduring partnership in the gospel, as he wrote to the Philippians? Or would he thank the Lord for your faith in Jesus and your love for the saints, as he thanked the Ephesians? What would he thank God for about your church? Your church-centered activities and events? Your bigger budget or giving campaign? Your emphasis on spiritual gifts? Best-selling author Gene Getz asks the soul-searching questions we should all ask ourselves in this completely revised and updated edition of his classic book The Measure of a Church. Of course, it's squarely up to you to decide how well your church meets the mark. But as Getz reminds us all, God has His own yardstick! Book jacket.
