The God Invasion free pdf Jesus said, "I will build my church- and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." More than two-thousand years have passed and yet statistics indicate that the church hasn't made as much progress as one would expect after the first century. This book offers an explanation of the apparent disconnect between Christ's words and the hapless state of his church today. The United States Census Bureau Records give some startling statistics, backed up by denominational reports from major denominations: Every year more than 4000 churches close their doors compared to just over 1000 new church starts! Every year, 2.7 million church members fall into inactivity. Research suggests that they are leaving churches as hurting and wounded victims of some kind of abuse, disillusionment, or neglect. From 1990 to 2000, the combined membership of all Protestant denominations in the USA declined by almost 5 million members (9.5%), while the US population increased by 24 million (11%). Between 1992 and 2002, 77% to 87% of the American population identified itself as Christian. Yet only 22% of Americans "frequently" attended church in 1992 20.5% of Americans "frequently" attended church in 1995 19% of Americans "frequently" attended church in 1999 18.0% of Americans "frequently" attended in church in 2002 The God invasion is a quick read that examines why God chose the metaphor of an army to describe important aspects of the nature of his church. When we understand the kingdom aspect of our identity as Christ's church, we can effectively march behind him as our king to conquer the nations for his spiritual kingdom."

About Rick Spinos

In December of 1983, Rick was sent as a missionary to Brazil to work with an organization called Project Amazon. He worked in a boat factory as manager and factory supervisor and oversaw the construction of over 40 houseboats, 1 yacht, and a Catamaran Hospital boat for church planting use along the Amazon River. He married his wife Sandra who is a Brazilian national in July of 1985 and they assumed the pastorate of one of the Project Amazon churches in 1988. In 1990, Rick and his wife were sent as church planters to the state of Amapa, where they planted three churches for Project Amazon. In 2008, they affiliated themselves with the Vine International and the last church that they planted became one of the Churches under the care of this organization. In December of 2009, they were invited to join a church planting endeavor in Southern Florida. They accepted the invitation and turned the last church in Brazil over to the Brazilian Nationals in March of 2010. In late 2011 they moved to Southern Florida and joined the staff at the Vine Florida. In November of 2014 they moved to the Seattle area where they currently reside as pastors of the Vine Seattle. In Brazil, Rick has written extensively in the Portuguese language in the area of Christian worker training. He has written Bible study guides, evangelistic tracts, and hundreds of small group lesson guides. From June 2009-2010 he hosted a highly successful Christian radio program with his wife called "Overcomers on the air." He has just started freelance activities since he arrived in the U.S. at the end of 2010. Rick maintains a Facebook page with a little over 1,800 fans called "Why be Holy if Salvation is by Grace" http: //www.facebook.com/why.be.holy where he has posted hundreds of short, pithy phrases and where he has published several articles in the notes section.
