The Gospel-Centred Church

Full Product Description

Gospel ministry is much more than simply evangelism. It is about shaping the whole of our church life and activities by the content of and imperatives of the gospel. It is about ensuring that our church or group is motivated by and focused on the Gospel, as opposed to our traditions, or the scores of other worthy causes and needs that could fill our time.

The seventeen key principles contained in this workbook are an attempt to articulate what a true gospel ministry might look like. They are principles that can be worked out in a range of situations, from Sunday school or youth work to a whole congregation.

Gospel-Centred Church is not a recipe for success, but is rather designed to help clarify our thinking about how to be more faithful to God's saving message - not only in what we say, but in how we live our lives as the people of God.

Steve Timmis and Dr Tim Chester have years of experience behind them in churches large and small. Currently, they are part of the leadership team of The Crowded House - a church planting initiative in Sheffield.

The Gospel-Centred Church by Steve Timmis;Tim Chester was published by The Good Book Company in January 2002 and is our 14368th best seller. The ISBN for The Gospel-Centred Church is 9781873166871.
