Why is the local church important in fulfilling the great commission
Why is the Local Church Important in fulfilling the Great Commission?

“To say the church is an awesome resource is still an understatement, possibly somewhat condescending. She is more than that. She is a God-designed central player, a full partner…

The vast majority of all the resources God has entrusted to his people – spiritual gifts, vocational expertise, life experience, capacity for spiritual warfare, financial reserves, etc. – he has placed in the local churches.”

-George Miley, author ofLoving the Church, Blessing the Nations
