In the new book, “Your Church is Too Small“, by my good friend John Armstrong (Zondervan), he speaks about as plain as one can about the oneness of the Church of Jesus Christ. You will never be able to find a clearer call to God’s mission on the earth and the place the Church has in it-in the past, present, and to the very end of time. Then he leaves the reader to consider the real cost for anyone that will accept this challenge; the real “Mission Impossible”.

” It will require us to surrender our small plans and embrace a bigger vision of the church, no matter what the size of our local congregation may be. Frankly, to do this, you must die. No one likes to think about dying, but there is no other way to pursue this vision.” (p.198)

Look for my full review of John’s book later this week. Read the foreword by J.I. Packer.
