Book description
Surprising. Risky. Daring to change the world. Church {just got really interesting!} In An Unstoppable Force, author Erwin McManus offers a vision of the church taking its rightful place. An unstoppable force created to change the world. A church that is active and engaged with its community. A church that dares to cut itself free from atrophied practices and programs to flourish in creative and compelling worship. Where teachers of the Word risk reaching out to our multi-sensory, multi-layered culture with music, the arts and other unique expressions of love and faith. A church that prospers in the life of Christ. New life comes into a church-an apostolic ethos-when it realizes its destiny is found in its early church origins. A living part of the body of Christ. Driven to find its uniqueness beyond being a cookie cutter copy of the "successful church." An Unstoppable Force will *Challenge you to see God's vision for the mission and purpose of the church. *Help you to explore specific changes in the culture that call for immediate change in the church. *Offer practical ways for your church to find its unique voice and identity to express Christ's love and faith to your culture. *Present interactive questions in each chapter to foster discussion about the life of your church, its focus on Christ, and how it can be a richer influence on your culture. Never settle for church as usual again! Let An Unstoppable Force excite and inspire you to be part of the Church that God had in mind!
