In a world of competing voices about what church is all about, Gene ^Getz, with the wisdom God has granted him over decades of ministry, provides a solidly ^grounded and thoroughly biblical approach to how God assesses the strength, health, ^and maturity of a local church.  Previously titled The Measure of a Church.

He ^addresses...
-The definition of the church
-The standard of measure by which ^the church should be defined (Is it centered on Christ?  Does it display the ^fruit of the Spirit?  Is it growing in its ability to display faith, hope, ^and love?)
-How does one measure leadership?
-How does one measure worship?
-What ^is the one, ultimate standard the church is measured by?



In a world of competing voices about what church is all about, Gene Getz ^provides a solidly grounded and thoroughly biblical approach to how God assesses ^the strength, health, and maturity of a local church.


What is real success?


Do our relationships in ^the church reflect Christ? Does church sometimes look more like a dysfunctional ^family than a healthy one? Do we really understand what discipleship ought to look ^like?


By limiting the definition of a healthy church to human standards we ^are effectively missing God's point for it.


With more than four decades of ^pastoring, church planting and seminary teaching, Gene Getz has seen how the health ^of a church must be measured by the authenticity of its members. Their understanding ^of who Jesus Christ is and their reflection of Him in daily life is what really ^matters.


In this updated and expanded version of his classic work, Gene Getz ^helps you find the biblical approach to how God assesses the strength, health, and ^maturity of His local church. Turn your questions into answers as you learn scriptural ^truths necessary for measuring real success. 



GENE A. GETZ, (B.A., Rocky Mountain College; M.A., Wheaton College; ^Ph.D., New York University), a host and teacher of Renewal Radio, served as a professor ^at Moody Bible Institute and Dallas Theological Seminary. He has authored more ^than 60 books, including The Measure of a Healthy Church, Elders and Leaders, ^and the Men of Character series. He has been a church planting pastor in ^the Dallas metroplex since 1972 and now serves as President of the Center for Church ^Renewal and Pastor Emeritus of Fellowship Bible Church North in Plano, Texas.
