Description of Power to the Church by Morris Chapman
Power to the Church is a timely reminder to every Southern Baptist Church--whether large or small, urban or rural, traditional or contemporary--that the strength of denominational cooperation in missions, church planting, theological education, and prophetic cultural witness clearly blesses rather
than burdens the health and vitality of each local congregation. Author Morris H. Chapman, a dynamic 40-year champion of the cause, says:
"As I approach the hour of retirement from the helm of the SBC Executive Committee, I feel a special responsibility to offer a perspective that helps to move Southern Baptist churches forward from an era of difficult (but necessary) self-definition to an age of Christ-honoring, transformational ministry that is neither removed from the solid foundation of biblical inerrancy nor divorced from an innovative ministry strategy.
"Christ has called us to proclaim the saving gospel of his death and resurrection to people where they are, not where they once were. Power to the Church hopes to stimulate the creative energies of a rising generation of ministry leaders to reach new heights for the Lord."
