5 Things to Pray for Your Heart

Also available

God calls us to be "devoted to one another in love" (Romans 12:10). What does this look like for us today? How can we be the kind of church member who makes a real difference?

This timely and engaging book by Tony Merida explores what church is, why being part of it is exciting, and why it’s worthy of our love and commitment. He sets out eight privileges and responsibilities of a church member: to belong, to welcome, to gather, to care, to serve, to honor, to witness and to send.

This is a great book for every churchgoer to read, especially as churches start to meet in person after many months of disruption from Covid-19. Whether you're new to your local church or have been attending for some time, this book will re-energize you with God’s vision for the local church.

A discussion guide at the end of book makes Love Your Church a great resource for reading with other church members.

Accompanying free downloads are available that can be used for small groups. There are downloadable worksheets, a PDF version of the book's discussion guide, introductory videos for each chapter and more.

David Platt

Lead Pastor, McLean Bible Church, Washington, D.C.; Author, Radical

The best thing I could say about this book is that I love the church more after reading it. And I’m confident you will, too. Whether you’re new to a church, or you’ve spent your whole life in church, will help you experience the wonder of what God has designed you and me to experience as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Alistair Begg

Senior Minister, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, Ohio; Author, Brave by Faith

This book reminds me why it was that, long before I became a pastor, I was thrilled to be a part of a local church. I commend it enthusiastically and hope that each member of my church will read, mark, inwardly digest, and live out the lessons learned.

Jen Oshman

Author, Enough About Me

Church feels complicated these days. People wonder if it’s even relevant anymore and we tend toward cynicism and individualism. In Tony Merida is like a big brother who explains what in the world the church is for. His eight reasons to love my church lifted my eyes off of myself and off the current cultural landscape and onto the beauty and wonder of God and how he designed his people to gather together with purpose, care, mission, and joy. This is a life-giving read.
