Becoming a Great Church

What does God want the church to be and to do? How does the church fit into God’s plan? What does he want the church to accomplish during our time on planet earth? The answer to these questions focuses on the nature and purpose of the church.


As I began my ministry at First Central Baptist Church, I preached a three-week series on “Becoming a great church.” We focused on three key passages of Scripture that describes the nature and purpose of the church. These passages express my convictions about what the local church should be and do.
