The Purpose Driven Church:
Growth Without Compromising Your Message & Mission
Rick Warren. English Edition.
"The issue is church health, not church growth!" declares Rick Warren. "If your church is healthy, growth will occur naturally. Healthy, consistent growth is the result of balancing the five biblical purposes of the church." He shares a proven five-part strategy that will enable your church to grow: (1) a warmer through fellowship (2) deeper through discipleship (3) stronger through worship (4) broader through ministry, and (5)larger through evangelism. The Purpose Driven Church shifts the focus away from church building programs to emphasizing a people-building process. Rick Warren says, "If you will concentrate on building people, God will build the church."
