Sinopsis: An inspiring description and story showing how a church can become an irresistible influence on its neighborhood, community, and world by building bridges over troubled waters to a dying culture through showing the love of God in action.
Contraportada: A city set on a hill, inescapably visible. A lit lamp brilliantly illuminating the darkest room.
With compelling metaphors, Jesus described the church and its impact on the world. And indeed, filled with the Holy Spirit, the early church demonstrated a spiritual energy and depth that transformed the surrounding culture.
Yet today, instead of turning the world upside-down, we’ve largely turned it off. When people think of church at all, a sobering majority view it as big on ideals but short on reality. We have a choice. We can maintain our trajectory and descend into irrelevance. Or we can reclaim our incomparable birthright--the irresistible influence of a church vitally connected with God, each other, and the world around us.
The Church of Irresistible Influence is about church transformation, about a vision worth living for and changing for because it pulses with the very heartbeat of God. If you are a pastor or church leader, prepare to be inspired, challenged, and equipped with practical insights for making your church a strong, well-traveled link between heaven and earth in your community.
Using bridges as a metaphor for irresistible influence--or i2, as he calls it--Robert Lewis shares the experiences and lessons of Fellowship Bible Church to show you: *What it will take to reconnect your church with your community *The how-to’s of "incarnational bridge building" *True stories of i2 in action *How to expand the i2 effort through new partnerships and adventures *Requirements of the church in the 21st century
Passionate, thought-provoking, and personal, this book will plant the want-to and pave the way for your church--no matter your size or location--to become a church of irresistible influence in your God-ordained corner of the world.
