The teaching of God’s Word, the fellowship of God’s people, and the sanctification of God’s children are among the essential characteristics of a Christ-centered church. Unfortunately, for many churches today, the Gospel is not at the heart of their ministry. How can we be certain that our local churches are rooted firmly in Scripture and the Gospel’s centrality?
The Heart of the Church: The Gospel’s History, Message, and Meaning by Pastor Joe Thorn explains with straightforward clarity how to be assured that your church is adhering to the doctrines of the Gospel and worshiping the God of the Bible. In this brief, theology-rich book, Thorn takes us through the fundamental beliefs, behaviors, and priorities of a church that has the Lord Jesus Christ at the heart of its teaching, hope, joy, and worship.
If you’re looking for a church or seeking to affirm that your present church is Gospel-driven and Scripture-guided, The Heart of the Church will answer your questions thoroughly and give you a clear roadmap to lead you in the right direction.
Or, if you’re in pastoral ministry or church leadership, The Heart of the Church will help you draw guidance and encouragement.
