Dying to Grow

Never before have we seen the church degenerate at such a rapid pace. This is largely due to the church pursuing congregational growth instead of kingdom growth. The church is dying because our growth isn’t based on strategies to reach the lost with the gospel. The time to change is now, we can’t wait any longer. People’s eternities are at stake. 

What is your church’s priority? Are you more concerned with filling your building or furthering the Kingdom? This book will challenge you to evaluate just how important gospel-based evangelism is to you and your church, and call on you to restore an intentional evangelism strategy within the body. Hell will tremble when churches once again make evangelism the central theme of their strategy. 

I like how the author relates the dying church to a cancerous situation, we have sat back and let the church slowly die.   What can we do to reclaim the church in the book of Acts?

That is the question that the author is writing to us about in this book.  It's not filling the benches in the church, it comes down to filling the people and their hearts with God's word.

It isn't how big a church you have, but how faithful you are in delivering God's word and the gospel to each person.  

This is a great book for any leader in the church, from pastor to lay leader!
