Overview

The Kingdom-Focused Church will give you everything you need to achieve your church's full potential—and relief from the smorgasbord approach that distracts you from the unique focus, nature, and mission of the church God has saved for you. You'll discover that success doesn't come from copying someone else's ideas or methods, but from knowing the biblical model of a church and understanding how to conform your church—regardless of size, location, resources, history, or any other variable—to that biblical pattern. Your answer is in knowing the biblical model of a church and understanding where you are, which direction you need to head, and how to fix things as they break down along the way. In Mims' warm, engaging style, he encourages you to discover for yourself why a Kingdom focus will work when all else fails.

    A Must-Read

    If you read no other book this year, grab this one and read it twice! The author draws out the principles behind some of the most 'famous' churches of our day and provides us with the help we need in our churches today. This is not just another 'how to build a church' book, but a book that helps us to understand Who and what we ought to be focused on when working within the church. This one is worth the time and money invested. Read it and pass it on to your Pastor.
