Missions: God's Glory in All Nations

The purpose of the church is to go out with the gospel and make disciples of all the peoples of the earth. In a word, the purpose of the church is missions. In this study you'll gain a solid biblical foundation for why we do missions and what exactly it is. You'll learn about the scope of the task and the means for reaching “all nations.” This study is for all who want to learn how their life connects to God’s global purposes.

The Imperfect Disciple

Men’s Book Study

Too many discipleship books are written for perfect people who know all the right Sunday school answers. This book is for the rest of us—people who screw up, people who are weary, people who are wondering if it's safe to say what they're really thinking. With incisive wit, warm humor, and moving stories, Jared Wilson shows us how the gospel actually works through us and in us, even when we can't get our act together.
