Allowing the Biblical truths of the Heidelberg Catechism to shape our theology and Christian living.

STT 051 – Praying for Church Growth (HC LD 48, Q/A 123)

Christmas is coming. A great gift idea for under $5 is to buy a friend a copy of the Heidelberg Catechism. Pick up my NEW RELEASE on Amazon, The Heidelberg Catechism: True Comfort for Life & Death.

Much church growth material focuses on marketing strategies and practical advice about how to appeal to culture. But what about the Lord’s Prayer? Christ said he will build his church, and Christ also taught his disciples to pray for his kingdom to come. Do we know what to pray for? Our Lord wants us to pray for the increase of his church.

Check out my book Predestined for Joy: Finding Comfort in a Controversial Doctrine. Leave a review on Amazon.
