Over the next few months, Northpoint’s Growth Groups are going to take a biblical look at church membership as we read through the book, What is A Healthy Church Member? Now this doesn’t sound like the most exciting topic, but you will be surprised at the fruit that comes from of a deeper look at the role each of us plays in our church.
The author, Pastor Thabiti Anyabwile, believes that for Christians, playing an active part in the local church is not optional. God intends every believer to contribute to the mission of the local church and experience profound spiritual growth as a result. He states, “The health of the local church depends on the willingness of its members to inspect their hearts, correct their thinking, and apply their hands to the work of ministry” (page 15).
Some of the topics this book discussed include being an expositional listener, genuinely converted, biblical evangelist, humble follower, and growing disciple.
Copies are available in the Foyer THIS Sunday for $6.00.
