Recommended Resources on the Importance of the Local Church

August 6, 2012

If you have been around Redeemer for any amount of time, you know how much we stress, value, and love the local church.  Have you ever wondered why?  Well, in light of Caleb’s sermon from Sunday, Why Do We Stress the Importance of the Local Church?, we want to recommend some great resources on the importance of the local church.

First, we happily recommend everything from 9Marks Ministries.  Perhaps no ministry has done more to share a biblical vision for the local church than 9Marks.  On their website, they have tons of great articles, interviews, sermons, question and answer sessions, etc. to articulate the importance of the local church.  We love every book they put out, but if we could highlight one for you, it would be The Church by Mark Dever. Others would be Nine Marks of a Healthy Church and The Deliberate Church.

In addition to the 9Marks resources, we would also recommend to you: Total Church and The Gospel-Centred Church by Tim Chester and Steve Timmis, What Is the Mission of the Church by Kevin DeYoung and Greg Gilbert, and Biblical Foundations for Baptist Churches by John Hammett.  All of these are great resources and are sure to cultivate a love and concern for the local church as they have for us, the elders of Redeemer Church.  Enjoy!
