Church growth has been researched, taught and written about for decades. Church health, on the other hand, is a more recent emphasis. Today we’re giving you a sneak peek into a popular Christian Life School of Theology Global course called “Building Churches That Last” taught by Dr. Larry Asplund. In this episode, he highlights nine fundamentals that defined the first church in the book of Acts. Learn the dynamics of the New Testament church that can help build a healthy church today.
Dr. Larry Asplund comes from a long line of Christian ministers and educators. He has been involved in pastoral ministry and teaching for 48 years, including serving as an associate pastor, teaching pastor, senior pastor, and church planter. His professional background also includes being actively engaged in the ministry of higher education for 31 years, including roles as a full-time Bible college teacher, seminary teacher, and university vice president.
The keys to both church growth and church health can be found in the book of Acts. Here are nine components of the “first church” that can be used to establish a local church that will be more than a fad, lasting until Jesus comes.
