Who Needs the Church?

The Role of the Church in the Life of the Believer and the Believer's Role in the Life of the Church
  • By Terry L. Johnson
Product Description

A thought-provoking introduction to the importance of the local church

It seems that increasing numbers of professing Christians in the West do not attend church. Church, to many, has become a place to go when it is convenient, to have one's needs met. Terry L. Johnson asks whether our individualistic, dismissive attitude to the gathering of the local church can be squared with that of the New Testament.

Examining what the Bible has to say about the church, Johnson shows why the local body of believers is an essential part of the life of every believer - and the role that each individual believer plays in the life of the church. This thought-provoking, challenging book will benefit every believer.
