Engage with the body of Christ
In Israel's northern city of Caesarea Philippi, among the ruins of a worship center dedicated to the Greek god Pan, a cave exists that was long believed by those who worshipped there to be the doorway into the netherworld. It was in the vicinity of this grotto, the alleged gateway to hell, that Jesus promised: "Upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it" (Matthew 16:18).
From Pentecost in the first century to the present day, Satan has attempted to destroy Christ's church—yet it endures. From a small group of Jewish outsiders in Jerusalem, two thousand years ago, Christ built His church to reach even the remotest parts of the world. Despite controversies, wars, and denominational splits, the church continues to be the means through which God announces to a dark and dying world that light and life have come in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ.
For these reasons, and many more, we learn about and appreciate the body of Christ, the church.
We can help you feed your flock—and your church leaders—with nutritious spiritual food presented in a variety of ways.
Church Family Values
Too often, a church takes its cues from the world and simply offers services to consumers. Chuck Swindoll reminds us that the church should instead value integrity in leadership, honor among everyone, and grace balanced with accountability. Sounds more like a family, doesn’t it? That’s what church should be . . . and can become. Learn More

(Ezekiel 33:30–33; Amos 8:11–12; Joel 2:21–27)The bold proclamation of God’s Word that once characterized evangelical pulpits has been replaced with shallow and sometimes silly substitutes designed to entertain listeners rather than feed the soul and equip us for a deeper walk and sacrificial service.
