9Marks Journal 10, 3 (May-June 2013) on Church and Churches

The latest issue of the 9Marks Journal, this one devoted to ‘church and churches’, is now available as a pdf here.

In the Editorial, Jonathan Leeman writes: ‘Christ’s kingdom is bigger than any one of our churches.’

And a little further on:

‘It is easy to be territorial as a pastor. You love your church, and who has time to invest in other churches? But part of building a healthy church is knowing how your church should relate to others. Right relationships help your church to be holy internally, to be a good witness outwardly, and to plant a new generation of churches.

‘In other words, cultivating good relationships between churches helps to fulfill the Great Commission.’
