Churches committed to following Christ's example want to see this world changed for the sake of eternity. While the supernatural component of making that happen goes without saying, how does a body of believers do its part to be in that sweet spot where true spiritual transformation can occur? In Transformational Church, bestselling research authors Thom S. Rainer and Ed Stetzer have surveyed fifty thousand down to five hundred congregations in search of the qualitative answer. Their book contains a wealth of indispensable new data, nuanced insights, and clear how-to guidance, all centered on this key finding:Transformational churches make disciples whose lives are being transformed by the gospel so that people engage the culture around them for its ultimate transformation. Deeply committed to the essential foundations of discipleship (worship, community, and mission), transformational churches practice their faith and make disciples through vibrant leadership, prayerful dependence upon God, and relational intentionality. And they do so paying mind to their unique context and with a missionary mindset. The most comprehensive study of the American church to date.
