The second in Joe Thorn’s three-book series on the confession, nature, and expression of the Church, The Character of the Church explores what the church is fundamentally like.
For a local church to actually be a church, certain marks are essential. A church that follows the apostles’ pattern is one where:
The word of God is faithfully preached
The sacraments are rightly administered
Leadership is biblically formed and functioning
Discipline is practiced with grace
The mission of the church is shared by all
Joe expounds each of these in detail, yet leading readers to a clear understanding. A book for laymen, The Character of the Church helps Christians know plainly what makes a church a church, and how to conduct themselves accordingly.
