There is no such thing as a perfect church—but there is such a thing as a healthy church. So what distinguishes a healthy church from an unhealthy one?
Now in its fourth edition, Nine Marks of a Healthy Church is designed to walk readers through this very question. Expanding on each of the 9 marks—expositional preaching, gospel doctrine, concern for discipleship, and more—this classic text offers tried-and-true biblical principles for leading a church toward health. A must-read for pastors, church leaders, and laypeople, this updated edition features a new preface and added content on prayer and missions.
