I love the church. I have experienced numerous life-changing worship services and events. I have watched as followers take missional living seriously and they make lives and communities better by their presence. I have witnessed the positive impact that a unified church can have on communities locally and globally. As Bill Hybels has said on many occasions,
Nothing on earth has greater potential to change lives and carry out His kingdom work in your community, than your local church. There’s nothing like the local church when it’s working right. Its beauty is indescribable. Its power is breathtaking. Its potential is unlimited. No other organization on earth is like the church. Nothing even comes close.
