"I Will" is now available!
I Will is now available!
Ever since I Am a Church Member was released, I've been asked about the next step of church membership. The common question could be summed up like this:
Once the attitude about church membership has been determined, what are the actions that should result?
I Will answers that question by explaining nine simple traits which will transform you into a church member who makes a lasting impact on others.
One of the most often quoted lines from I Am a Church Member was "an inactive church member is an oxymoron." You are called to action as a member of the Body of Christ. And when you begin to understand the action plans God has set before you, be prepared to respond with two simple words: I will.
Order I Will in quantities of 20 for just $5 each. Order at LifeWay.com (when quantities in multiples of 20 are entered, the price will automatically adjust) or pick up a box at your local LifeWay Christian Store.
Smallgroup.com is a web-based resource that combines a large library of Bible studies with a convenient tool that lets you quickly customize the content to make it your own. For I Will, the team at SmallGroup.com has created a FREE four-week study that coincides with the book and examines the Biblical basis of being an outwardly-focused Christian.
