  • To Life : Rediscovering Biblical Church


    Are you satisfied with your Christian life or do you get the feeling that something is missing, but you’re not sure what it is? Have you ever asked the question, where does the World end and the Church begin? Is the 21st Century Church truly the best it could possibly be? Are there forgotten places that we should be revisiting?

    Dare we believe that we could return to the Biblical Church of the first apostles?

    Some say we can’t, others have tried and failed. This author believes it’s worth trying again because it’s all a question of mindsets and this book will explain why, with the wit, wisdom and wonder that is the trademark of Steve Maltz’s writing.

  • How The Church Lost The Truth


    It should have been so simple. There was the Bible, God’s authoritative and complete word for mankind. His gift to us. One volume of sixty six books in all, from In the beginning to amen. One basic message. Choose Life, He said. So what did we do? We chose … denominations, 38,000 of them. One book, thousands of interpretations.

    Snake handlers in Kansas, Prosperity teachers in Washington, Liberationists in El Salvador, Gay Bishops in New Hampshire, New Age rectors in London. They all claim the Bible as their inspiration and rulebook. Once this book is opened, why is it that folk seem to see different things? One book, one message, one Babel. How come? Where can the Truth be found or has the Church lost The Truth?

    This explosive book tells the whole sad story of what actually happened to the Church over the last two thousand years and how it managed to lose its focus and take on so many ideas from Greek philosophy that Christianity has just become a melting point of truth mixed up with very strange ideas.

    If Jesus were to return today, which Church – if any – could He call his own?

    In this challenging, provocative but entertaining book the author examines what has happened to some key battlegrounds for Truth and asks, where did those ideas come from?

    *How did God kick things off?
    *How does He deal with His covenant people?
    *Who does He let into heaven?
    *What is Hell really like?
    *How is He really going to wrap things up?

    Some of the answers will astound you and you may also be prompted to ask the question, how has the Church managed to lose so much Truth?

    Prepare to be challenged to the very core of your faith. Continue Reading How The Church Lost The Truth

    Luke 16: 14-18
    14 Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him. 15 And He said to them, You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

    16 The law and the prophets were until John. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is pressing into it. 17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tittle of the law to fail.

    18 Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced from her husband commits adultery. Continue Reading Satans Influence In The Church

  • Faith Seeking Understanding


    How does the Christian faith help us see into the true nature of life more clearly? Why do people suffer? Where do we come from? What does Jesus have to say to a changing world? What can we learn from great mission pioneers about seeking truth at the cutting edges of human knowledge? Faith Seeking Understanding explores such questions. Notable Christian thinkers such as Philip Yancey, Alvin Plantinga, Rodney Stark, Allan Chapman, Don Richardson, Yuan Zhiming, and more, share powerful insights that help answer the deepest questions people face in the twenty-first century from the perspective of Christian faith. Inspired by the lives and accomplishments of Ralph D. Winter and Paul Brand, this book seeks to apply the curious, open-minded, and compassionate spirit these Christian leaders exhibited to key contemporary questions in science, history, philosophy, theology, and comparative religion. The reader will gain a fresh appreciation for the intellectual challenges of the Christian faith, and some of most fascinating and sometimes controversial ways in which those challenges are being met.

    Mike Shipman, a Southern Baptist missionary in Asia, took a bold and biblical approach to reaching the millions of Muslims in his country.

The result is, Any-3: Anyone, Anywhere, Any Time, a highly effective and deeply biblical five-step process that has seen thousands of Muslims say Yes to Jesus and enter into new communities of faithful discipleship.
    Any-3 provides biblical principles and practical steps that have equipped hundreds of Christians to witness confidently and effectively.

  • Liderazgo Contra La Corriente


    En leer las Escrituras ha notado usted que la manera de guiar y de liderar que Dios aprueba es diferente a lo comun en el mundo?

    ? No obstante, muchas veces vemos por precepto y por ejemplo la manera de gobernar del mundo en la iglesia. Con pena y dolor somos testigos y a veces victimas de lideres utilizando el sistema del mundo donde decimos que Jesus es Seor.

    In reading the Scriptures, have you noticed guidance and leading that God approves of is different than the common way the world does it?

    However, many times we see in principle and example the way of leading from the world in the church. With much pain and hurt we are witnesses and sometimes victims of leaders using the system of the world where we say Jesus is Lord.

    Serving is such an unusual way to lead that the church itself is confused about this style of leadership. On reading this book you will see the Biblical way to lead and note how different it is. Continue Reading Liderazgo Contra La Corriente

  • Marcados Por El Amor


    Cuando una iglesia tiene problemas, cual es el mas urgente para remediar?
    – Las mujeres no saben su lugar en el ministerio de la iglesia.
    – Los jovenes exigen respeto, pero no lo demuestran hacia otros.
    – La cena del Seor no se celebra correctamente.
    – Los nios necesitan otra sala para su enseanza.
    – !Ni me pregunte sobre la musica!
    De todas las cosas relacionadas con el evangelio y la iglesia de nuestro Seor, una es mas importante y mas urgente que todas las demas . . . el amor. Autor Boyce Mouton dice que podemos tener todo funcionando correctamente, con diaconos, con ancianos, con verdad en la enseanza, pero si el amor falta en una congregacion, laa iglesia esta desviada de lo principal. Pongamos en primer lugar lo
    primordial. Sin amor no somos nada, y quiza ni nos reconozca el mundo como discipulos del Mesias. Lea este libro sobre lo principal entre los que seguimos a Cristo.

    When a church has problems, which is the most urgent to fix?
    – The women don’t know their place in church ministry.
    – The youth demand respect from others, but don’t show it for others.
    – The Lord’s Supper is not being celebrated correctly.
    – Children need a new classroom.
    – Don’t even ask me about the music!
    Of all things related to the gospel and the church of our Lord, one is more important and more urgent than the rest . . . and it’s love. Author Boyce Mouton says that we can have everything functioning correctly, with deacons and elders, with truth in the teaching, but if love is lacking, the church is derailed from the principal thing. Let’s put the first thing in first place. Without love we are nothing, and the world may not even recognize us as disciples of the Messiah. Read this book about the main thing among those who follow Christ. Continue Reading Marcados Por El Amor

  • Church Shouldnt Suck The Life Out Of You


    Using humor and frank honesty, Pastor Jim Minor describes how his own street outreach organization transformed from a vibrant, God-infused ministry into a conventional, safe church that almost sucked all the passion for ministry right out of him. Then, Jim explains how he got his passion back again.

    Who is this book for?

    *Pastors and ministry leaders who have lost their focus and have grown to resent the ministries to which they have been called

    *Those in the pews who have lost the spark of their passion for God and find themselves merely going through the motions and playing church

    *Non-churchgoers who stay away because they don’t want any part of a dry, lifeless religion that doesn’t make any difference in the world

    If you identify with any of those categories, this book is for you!

    Let Jim Minor cast a vision for what church can be. Discover that it’s possible to venture beyond the church walls, to interact with the lost and hurting, and to watch God do miracles in people’s lives. And in the process, church might even become fun and fulfilling once again.

  • Evangelize Or Fosselize


    Truly, there is nothing so tragic, so hard, and so icy as a fossilized church or Christian. Nothing can keep the Christian warm, fresh, and alive like evangelism. Soulwinning is a safeguard against a dead, barren orthodoxy. That the church’s expansion depends upon her evangelism is the testimony of the ages. Failing to save, she cannot survive. A lack of evangelism, ultimately, will lead to extinction.

    Renowned Bible teacher Dr. Herbert Lockyer examines the call, the methods, the obstacles, and the challenge of bringing the gospel to a lost and hurting world. When the Holy Spirit enables men and women of God to offer their lives for the sake of the Lord Jesus and to turn the world upside down, it is the greatest adventure of all time!

  • What About The Church


    Throughout the long history of the church, men have searched in vain to discover the ideal model for the corporate structure of the church. No hierarchy is clearly spelled out in the Scriptures except what the Spirit says through Paul in the letter to the Corinthians or the Ephesians. Nevertheless, throughout the age of the church, many individuals and groups involved in wars and with blood on their hands have not hesitated to attempt to build the temple of the Lord in the form of a given denomination, group, or organized movement. These attempts resulted in building dead monuments instead of joining living stones that would be a light unto the nations. Man measures success according to the criteria of this world, the number of participants, or some other outward measurement, while God measures success by righteousness in the heart and obedience to His Word by those who have learned His ways.

  • Mission Shaped Children


    Church House Publishing

    The saying ‘Children are our future…’ may be a cliche but it is one that the Church cannot afford to ignore! Too often, nurture and worship for children is about containing and entertaining, rather than engaging with and growing young Christians who can give as much as they receive. Mission-shaped Church touched on the importance of involving and nurturing the children and young people in the Church, but only in passing. Mission-shaped Children fills this gap. Written as a response to Mission-shaped Church from the perspective of children, this important book explores: how the dramatic cultural, social and economic trends of recent years have impacted on children’s lives and how this affects the Church; developments in how the Church has nurtured children in the past 100 years; the many and varied opportunities there are to help children to experience Church and some of the challenges this presents for those working with children; and how the Church can shape itself around children and young people, rather than expecting them to fit in with the Church. Written in an engaging style, Mission-shaped Children contains many real life case studies, practical examples and questions for discussion. Continue Reading Mission Shaped Children
