The church is not defined by a building, but rather by lives committed to loving God and serving people in His name. Jesus said He would build His church and nothing will ever destroy it.
Dr. Stanley describes the many characteristics that make up a strong church and what we can do to contribute to the strength of our own church. Churches must have a vision that extends beyond their doors. They need to be involved in spreading the gospel in their communities and around the world. When we are committed to following God, He will open doors of opportunity.
