9781596694675: Faith Acts: A Provocative Call to Living What You Believe

Most Christians say they believe the Bible, but how many actually live like it? Faith Acts, a provocative and practical look at James 1:22, uses scriptural and personal ministry insights to show how authentic faith is based on how we apply the Bible not on how much we claim we believe it. Including real-life stories from one of the fastest-growing homeless churches in America, you'll see how the hope of Christ can change the worst of circumstances when ordinary believers commit to the principles of God's Word and do what it says.

Book Description New Hope Publisher - Impact, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. --James 1:22 Roughly 4,000 people experience homelessness in Chattanooga each year, and the city is home to numerous organizations dedicated to serving them. But no matter how hard they try to reach everyone, Chattanooga s homeless aid agencies simply can t. To make a difference in the lives of those in greatest need, it required more than cathedrals and Bible studies--it required action. Action that began with one homeless man under a bridge eventually grew into a dozen outdoor church services across a city, making it one of the fastest-growing churches in the community and among the largest homeless churches in North America. In Faith Acts, activists and popular writers Dillon Burroughs and Jimmy Turner offer scriptural and personal ministry insights to show that authentic faith is based on how we apply the Bible, not on how much we claim to believe its words. Sharing real-life stories of assisting children living out of hotels, alcoholics dying on the street, and addicts looking for a reason to live, these authors offer a provocative look at how the hope of Christ can change even the worst circumstances--when ordinary, Christian believers commit to the principles of God s Word and do what it says.
