Product Description

Perfect series for evangelism, discipleship, and ministry training

These days there are many competing ideas about church—what to believe, what model to follow, what mission to pursue, and so on. In all the discussion, we can too easily drift from the simple, biblical answer.

Joe Thorn's Church Trilogy series—the Heart, Life, and Character of the Church—gets back to the basics. It paints the biblical picture of the church, helping pastors lead better and all Christians better understand their role in the local body.

The Heart of the ChurchWhat a church believes

This book explains the story of the gospel, its basic doctrines, and God's work in salvation. Fresh yet consistent with classic expressions, it will help churches and Christians reclaim their essential identity and return from distracting pursuits.

The Character of the ChurchWhat a church is

This book details on the five elements of a biblical church. Concise, accessible, and historically informed, it teaches God's design for church so you know what to look for in one—or even how to lead one.

The Life of the ChurchWhat a church does

This book explores the mission of the church and the three rhythms for fulfilling it. The result is a simple, memorable model for church life and ministry. It equips pastors to refocus their ministries, and Christians to fulfill their purpose: to be and make disciples.
