I feel that is will be an excellent book for me to study as I go Bible college.

This book is the best treatment I have found of the concept of the New Testament Church, both Local and Universal, as revealed in the Scriptures.

This book is the best treatment I have found of the concept of the New Testament Church, both Local and Universal, as revealed in the Scriptures. Unlike most works on this and similar subjects, "THE CHURCH IN THE NEW TESTAMENT" is not written from a particular denominational standpoint or bias. You will not find a Baptist, Episcopal, Congregational, Dispensational, Reformed, etc., viewpoint expressed here, nor each's peculiar avoidance of verses which do not fit their predisposed theological positions. Instead, Kevin J. Conner offers an honest and factual look at what the N.T. Church Is Not, Is, and Is To Be. As he does in all his works (which the serious biblical student is earnestly encouraged to check out), Conner's refreshing method of taking his material directly from the biblical text (regardless of the implications or potential ruffling of preconceived doctrinal feathers) guards against errors, pet doctrines, and personal opinion, an approach, incidentally, which is recommended to many of the Christian authors writing today, and which undoubtedly would be welcomed by their reading public. Rather than merely skimming over the top of the various sub-points, the author treats of the O.T. types and patterns, the theological implications, and practical outworkings of a book-by-book revelation of the Church in the Gospels, Acts and Epistles. He explains the difference between Israel, the Kingdom, and the Church, also giving an in-depth assessment of each of the 7 N.T. Church offices, along with their scriptural qualifications, the nine Gifts of the Spirit, and the 30-odd congregational gifts/ministries available to the believer, showing how Christ is the Pattern for the Christian in all N.T. Church ministry.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
This book contains more Biblical and practical explanation on the New Tetsament style of doing church than any other book. I was assigned to teach a Bible College course on the 5 Fold Ministry and there is simply not a good textbook anywhere. Then I read this book and each of the Five Fold Ministries have a chapter of their own.
Its a type of book that while you are reading it you just simply know and sense that it is right and should be applied. It actually will leave you excited about doing church and then you wake up to the reality that may lead you to frustration because your churrch is not anything like this and how difficult, if not impossible, it would be to make these changes. Even though yu know this is a much more Biblical way.
This book at the same time does cover areas that can be utilized immediately in your church without any great stress. He covers in detail the offices and responsibilities of the Elder and the Deacons. Elders to rule; Deacons to serve.

Simply stated this book tells it like it is. Using only the Word of God as its support. If you do not believe something you can look it up in your very own Bible. More people should be using this book as a requirement for church officers and workers. I have told everyone I know they need to read this since our Bishop introduced this to us in our Ministry training.

This book is an absolute must for building your church according to the pattern and principles of the bible. The information is absolutely amazing. If you're launching or even if you have previously launched a church, this book is a must to have in your arsenal. I don't just recommend it but I demand my leadership have it to ensure we are all on the same sheet of music. Can't say enough good things about this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent reference tool for church ministries that are trying to change the paradym of their operations from a traditional doctrinal church to a church that is transitioning into the apostolic move of God. All of the references are scriptural and the examples of how ministry leadership offices, ordinations, consecrations and selection of leadership are clear and understandable.

Excellent book. I thought it was very informative with a ton of scriptural references to help show the NT blueprint. Every leader and church planter that desires to see the New Testament model of church structure should invest in it.
