But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.
A Church, the Church
Our task is not to plant “a” church. Our task is to plant The Church.
—Reggie McNeal, at Ignite (a church planting conference conducted in Phoenix last week by Converge Worldwide of the Baptist General Conference)
