Church Without Walls

Jim Petersen

$34.99

Paperback
What makes a church? is it the building, the people, or the mission? This book offers an exciting definition of the church that pushes beyond the too-small boundaries we've inherited.

- Publisher THE POPULAR DEFINITION OF CHURCH PUTS TOO MANY ESSENTIAL FUNCTONS OF THE BODY OUTSIDE THE DEFINITION, AND THEREFORE OUTSIDE THE CHURCH. By habit, the church has come to mean a place. A place where we congregate, a place where we build up believers. But as long as that's our whole understanding of church, we miss one of our primary functions as the people of God: being out in the world for the sake of the lost. "The sad reality is that going to the lost and living Christlike lives among them is not in our ecclesiology," says author Jim Petersen. Throughout its history, the church has pushed for institutionalism in an effort to preserve the purity of the gospel. As a result, we've evolved into congregations that meet inside the walls of a building-rather than vital communities that live among the lost. In Church Without Walls, Jim Petersen offers an exciting definition of the church that pushes beyond the too-small boundaries we've inherited from the past. The first-century Christians had to sort out Jesus from Judaism in order to become a people for all nations. Today, we have to sort out Jesus from our religious traditions in order to make Him available to our nation. That's the challenge we face: Will we be the church without walls, communicating a gospel free of traditional and cultural trappings? Or will we continue to reproduce our forms and structures, hiding the essence of the gospel within?

- Publisher
God has a need for women who will be there for other women--to encourage their dreams, speak into their lives, and listen to their hearts. Author Carol Kent imparts several principles from the life of Jesus for the making of an effective mentor.

This effective discipleship tool and Bible study will help equip you to mentor the young women in your life who long to draw nearer to God.
