Description
 
In these days of uncertainty in world affairs, God is building a sure house which is to be refuge from the storm. God has a glorious purpose which He wants to accomplish in and through that house in the earth today. If the Church is going to be all that it is intended to be, however, it is imperative that it be built according to the blueprint and design of the Heavenly architect. If the Church is going to demonstrate the glory of God to the nations, it is vital that every member of the Body of Christ be in his place of function and take his respective responsibilities as distributed by the Lord. This book details God’s glorious purpose in the Church, His dynamic plan for its construction and His tremendous concern for the active involvement of every member in the ministry to which he has been called. The purpose of the book is to give the reader a vision for what God wants to do in the Church, how He wants to work through the Church and how He wants to involve every individual in the corporate expression of the Church.
