The gates of hell shall not prevail against the church. Some Christians are intensely critical and even fearful of what the twenty-first-century church is becoming—citing its lack of holiness, compassion, biblical literacy, relevance to the world, and more. But when has the church not faced tribulation? In The Triumphant Church, Tony Suárez invites you to journey with him as he examines the birth and growth of Jesus’ glorious church—full of flaws and imperfect people, yet beautifully and wonderfully made. Using the stories from Acts, Tony encourages you to:
- invest in the church instead of leaving it.
- prioritize unity amidst threats of division.
- trust God to fulfill his promises when facing doubt and fear.
- expect the best from God when you hear the worst from the world.
- rise up and make disciples.
