A Dream for the Church

I love the church. I believe God loves the church. He loved the church enough to purchase it with the blood of Jesus. The church is God's eternal plan for making his wisdom known. When the church is what it can be by God's power, there is nothing like the church in our world.

We must recapture God's purpose for the church and make it our dream. The best days of the church are not in the past. God's power will propel the church into the future if the church opens its heart to God's mission and message. We must escape the staleness and stagnation that leads to boredom, and find the freshness and vitality of meaningful, abundant spiritual life.

The answers to our deepest questions and deepest needs are in the Bible. Here are some fundamentals.

Will you join me in regular prayer for the church?
