Qué impulsa a su iglesia? A cada iglesia la impulsa algo. Tradición, finanzas, programas, personalidades, acontecimientos, personas e incluso los mismos edificios pueden ser la fuerza que controla una iglesia. Sin embargo, Rick Warren cree que para que una iglesia sea saludable debe convertirse en una iglesia con propósito, edificada sobre la base de los cinco propósitos que Jesús dio a la iglesia en el Nuevo Testamento. "El aspecto importante está en la salud de la iglesia, no en el crecimiento", declara Warren. "Si la iglesia es saludable, crecerá de manera natural. Crecimiento saludable y constante es el resultado de balancear los cinco propósitos bíblicos de la iglesia." Una iglesia con propósito nos aparta el enfoque de la construcción de edificios y nos lleva a ocuparnos de la edificación de las personas. Rick Warren sostiene que "si nos ocupamos de edificar a las personas, Dios edificará su iglesia" Le invitamos a que descubra en estas páginas consejos prácticos y principios rectores que Rick Warren ha enseñado en seminario a más de veintidós mil pastores y líderes de sesenta denominaciones en cuarenta y dos países diferentes.

I thoroughly reviewed this book for my dissertation. Warren's basic philosophy is that the purpose of the church is so that unbelievers come there to be evangelized. Any thing that would keep them from coming should be eliminated. Warren misuses several passages of Scripture to support his thesis.

The Biblical reality is that the practical purpose of meeting at church is to equip believers to go out and do the work of evangelism.

The Bible does not invite people to church, but to Christ. Once they come to Christ, they become a part of the church. ( )

The Purpose-Driven Church by Rick Warren (?)

This audio version only includes the first five chapters of the book. I've never read the book. The first five chapters were good, but they really didn't leave me with any impression worth noting--although, that in itself is worth noting--and no more desire to read the remaining chapters. I'm not a Warren hater by any means--some of the things he's said on the Catalyst podcast were great!--but I can't say that I'd go out of my way to read any of his books to date. ( )

Amazon.com Review
The thesis of The Purpose Driven Church is that when churches think first about their health, growth is sure to follow. "If your church is healthy," writes Rick Warren, "growth will occur naturally. Healthy, consistent growth is the result of balancing the five biblical purposes of the church." These five purposes are to "Love the Lord with all your heart," "Love your neighbor as yourself," "Go and make disciples," "[Baptize] them," and "[Teach] them to obey." And those purposes can only be accomplished, argues Warren, when church leaders stop thinking about church-building programs and shift their focus to a "people-building process" involving fellowship, discipleship, worship, and evangelism. Warren, the founder of the fastest-growing Baptist church in American history, has taught seminars to thousands of pastors from all over the world, many of whom have successfully implemented his techniques.
