    And the book you are holding in your hands is further evidence of both of those qualities. It’s not often that you get a book whose cost can be justi-fi ed by the content in the pages before you even get to the introduction! The House Church Bookk is one of those unusual resources. I found the “15 Theses toward a Re-Incarnation of. T he Bible clearly shows us that the “church” is not a structure or building but rather a body of believers. Hebrews says, “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another.” This Bible verse emphasizes the fact that followers of Jesus must regularly meet together.

    3) churches are able to share the joy of serving together. When a church has an event and experiences the joy that comes from service, that joy is confined only to the local body of believers. But when when churches work together, the joy is multiplied.   The role of the modern church in the life of the 21st-century believer is critical because it fills a void only the church can.

In the "Sending Church Defined", Zach Bradley presents a very clear and concise call to the local body of Christ as to how it can reclaim its role in the missionary s: 7. Talk about those passages, pray together and worship with songs. After a couple of meals together, use a few of the questions in the following chapter to turn the focus to deeper things. As you meet non-Christians in everyday life, invite them over for a monthly discussion in your home that deals with controversial issues.

One of the greatest challenges for churches, pastors, staffers, and church leaders is the ability to work together. The reasons for an inability to work together appear endless: ego, pride, selfishness, a lack of vision, personality tension, church politics, and a failure to plug into a focused priority of Jesus first with a love for the Lord's church that sets aside personal agendas.
