What is an organic church? It’s a community of people framed by a common life in Christ, not religious programs. A community whose foundation is birthed by God, not built by methods. A vibrant family of Jesus where genuine, authentic relationships are fostered.
Influential leader and author Frank Viola is calling the church back to its biblical and spiritual roots. It’s a call grounded in a profound truth: in all things spiritual, origin determines destiny. This is why so many religious congregations today are struggling to survive. It’s not because of bad planning, but poor planting. So how do we return to God’s original plan and purpose for his church?
Viola presents an essential guide for finding, planting, and nourishing organic church communities. Within this comprehensive guide, he unearths rich spiritual insights from God’s Word and revisits the original design for the church. Drawing from both Scripture and real-world experience, this comprehensive guide offers fresh and practical tools for finding and planting life-changing churches that won’t just grow, but thrive.
