The church is not defined by a building, but rather by lives committed to loving God and serving people in His name. In this message, Dr. Stanley describes the many characteristics that make up a strong church and what we can do to contribute to the strength of our own church. Churches must have a vision that extends beyond their doors—spreading the gospel in their communities and around the world.
