Our website: drsfriesen.artdesignlife.com What's Your Church Like? Compared to Nine New Testament Churches is the eleventh book co-authored by John and Virginia Friesen. This study book offers an opportunity to compare your worship experience with nine New Testament churches, each of them offering a unique flavor. The Roman Church may be described as laid back, the Corinthian church as having potential, and the Galatian church as orderly. The Ephesian congregation is an affirming fellowship, the Philippian church is a joyful place to worship, and the Colossian congregation is one that enjoys philosophizing. The last three fellowships described in the book represent a charismatic congregation (Thessalonians), the alternative church (James), and a striving church(Thyatira). Read and compare; every Christian should attempt to be connected to a church that offers just the right mixture of worship, learning, and fellowship. Does your church do that for you?
