Companion Study Guide

About the book:

In his newest book, Sam Rainer covers why every Christ follower is meant to be connected to the church.

God has placed every individual to be a part of a congregation for their own good. God has also placed individuals in a church for the good of others.

Those inside the church and those outside the church need your help.
