In this video, pastor John Crotts offers counsel from God’s Word on the often asked question of why it’s important to be part of a good, local church. John wrote the book, “Loving the Church,” to help people see how glorious God's family really is, and also to see the countless ways that people and families can flourish within it. Pastor Crotts was interviewed in Richmond, VA by Christianity.com editor, Alex Crain, on the recent book entitled, “Loving the Church: God’s People Flourishing in God’s Family,” (John Crotts, Shepherd Press, 2010).
