"The Church of God" is a must read for anyone who wants to know the privileges and responsibilities of church membership from a biblical perspective. Scripturally sound, Fortner's treatment is extremely comprehensive, fully detailed, and given with absolute conviction.
In a forthright and incisive manner Don Fortner sets out the importance and the essential elements of public worship. He examines the qualities required in the pastor, elders and deacons, the nature of their work and the way in which the church should support them in that work. He then proceeds to show from Scripture why every true Christian should be a member of a local church and what this involves. Special consideration is given to the place of baptism and the Lord's Supper in the life and worship of the church and to the financial support of the work of the gospel, both at home and abroad.
This book challenges all Christians to greater commitment to the local body of believers to which they belong.
