Identify, avoid and overcome the challenges facing your church, so that you can stay faithful in a changing culture
Our culture is changing, and the church seems to be under increasing pressure.
But these dangers are not new—and God’s word shows us how to meet them head on. In this book, discover how Jesus’ messages to seven first-century churches in Revelation 2 – 3 is his message to your church today too.
Chapter by chapter, seasoned pastor Juan Sanchez opens up each Bible passage with warmth and clarity. He offers helpful historical details on circumstances faced by the early church, and pushes you to ask the hard questions about your own church and ministry in the light of each message. He turns the tables to show that the most deadly dangers come from within the church, not from outside of it.
But more than anything, this book will help the stressed and the struggling to fix their eyes on the risen and reigning Lord Jesus—who holds your local church in his hands.
This is a book for every pastor and elder, and anyone committed to playing their part in helping their local church thrive in an increasingly hostile environment. Together, you can live as Christ’s faithful, hope-filled people in a changing culture.
