The majority of churches in North America today are either plateaued or in decline. Christian values are under siege. Many have concluded that the future of the Church is bleak. But what would happen if the risen Christ suddenly appeared at your church’s door and took over day-to-day operations? Would anything change? Would there be renewed hope? There is Hope for your Church. Join Henry & Richard as they examine what happened when Christ took control of a little church that was about to die in Canada.
Many churches today practice hypocrisy. They claim that God is all-powerful, yet they never attempt anything they cannot do in their own strength. They believe God provides for all of their needs, yet they worry about their finances. They claim that Christ is the head of their church, yet members argue about how the church conducts its business. They hold the doctrine that Christ will build the Church, yet their church is plateaued or in decline. In America today, the majority of churches are not growing. Thousands of churches close their doors every year.
It is for this reason that Flickering Lamps: Christ and His Church was written. It tells the true story of how God took a church that was about to disband, and transformed it into an exciting center of mission activity. It relates how a small church began to let Christ truly lead them and the spectacular results that followed. Many churches have studied the profound truths found in this book and have found encouragement and experienced revival.
