"Christians belong in churches--the only places where we can thrive and grow spiritually. In "Why Church Matters," Joshua Harris makes this case with wisdom, clarity, and graciousness."
--Charles W. Colson
Church isn't where we go. It's who we are.
We were never meant to live our faith in isolation. The church is the place God uses to grow us, encourage us, and use our gifts for His glory. In this honest, personal, and practical book, Joshua Harris shows you why it's time to say yes to church and how to find the right one for you--the place where you can fall in love with the family of God.
