Leaders change and trends go out of style. Only churches that are built on the solid foundation of God's Word will remain effective.

Biblical Church Growth explores the unchanging biblical principles for church growth and applies them to today's culture. Gary McIntosh defines church growth as effective evangelism, not simply a methodology for increasing membership. He sets forth nine basic principles that provide an eternal foundation for helping any church, large or small, achieve lasting vitality and growth.

"At last! American church growth has been rescued from its hijackers and brought back to the original focus."
Jerry F. Reed, North Park Theological Seminary

"For many years critics have hounded church growth advocates for their failure to establish methodologies on biblical foundations. Gary McIntosh has done a great service by addressing these issues in a powerful and cogent way."
Dr. Thom S. Rainer, dean, Billy Graham School of Southern Seminary

"Gary McIntosh skillfully forges a step-by-step guidebook so that we can be instruments of Jesus to build his church today. No church leader should miss this strategic book."
C. Peter Wagner, Wagner Leadership Institute

"It is refreshing to have a church growth book that takes us back to basics. Gary McIntosh connects church leaders with the heartbeat of Donald McGavran, the undisputed father of the church growth movement."
Eddie Gibbs, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Gary McIntosh knows biblical church growth as it really is. He has the credentials, teaching gifts, and practical experience with hundreds of churches to give you the glue for a faithful church."
Kent R. Hunter, The Church Doctor, Corunna, Indiana

"Biblical Church Growth will give back to the church its hope and optimism for a Great Commission ministry."
Bill M. Sullivan, director of Mission/Evangelism, International headquarters of the Church of the Nazarene
