- The church that meets in the home (Romans 16:5; 1 Corinthians 16:19; Philemon 1:2)
- The church in a certain geographical area (Acts 13:1; Romans 16:1; 1 Corinthians 1:2)
- All of God’s called-out people (ecclesia, Matthew 16:18)
You are the church. You are the body of Christ,
perfectly arranged by God to carry out his mission for his world. — 1 Corinthians 12:18
In my new book, Small Group Vital Signs, I put on my doctor’s scrubs and got out my diagnostic instruments to help you measure the health of your group. Then, I provided holistic cures to help your group become the healthy body that God designed it to be. If you are the group’s leader, don’t attempt to do this alone. Your whole group must be involved!
This blog is an excerpt from my new book, Small Group Vital Signs: Seven Indicators of Health that Make Group... (TOUCH Publications) to be released late February, 2012.
