What makes for a healthy church? A large congregation? Plentiful parking? Vibrant music?
You may have read books on this topic before—but not like this one. This new expanded edition of Nine Marks of a Healthy Church is not an instruction manual for church growth. It is a pastor’s recommendation of how to assess the health of your church using nine crucial qualities that are neglected by many of today’s churches.
Whether you’re a church leader or an involved member of your congregation, you can help cultivate these elements in your church, bringing it new life and health for God’s glory.
“If you are a Christian leader, be careful of the work you are now holding in your hand: it may change your life and ministry.”
—D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
“This is a foundational work which I highly recommend.”
—John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher
“I want God’s word about the church. I turn with hope and confidence to Mark Dever’s radically biblical commitment. Few people today have thought more or better about what makes a church biblical and healthy.”
—John Piper, Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church
“This is the best book I have read on this topic of critical importance.”
—C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries
“Nine Marks of a Healthy Church is required reading for my students in ecclesiology.”
—Paige Patterson, President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
“[This book] belongs in the hands of every faithful pastor and all those who pray for reformation in this age.”
—R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Nine Marks of a Healthy Church is a biblical prescription for faithfulness.”
—J. Ligon Duncan III, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS
