By: Dr. David Ferguson
How relevant is the modern-day church to hurting and needy people?

A community of Jesus-followers should be a center of healing and wholeness:
- A community where broken people can find healing.
- A community where people experience Great Commandment love and are never alone.
- A community where Jesus followers actually do the Bible.
- A community where transformation is real and witness is a lifestyle.The Great Commandment Principle provides a Biblical priority for ministry and relationships that can forever change the way you relate to God, the way you love those closest to you, and the way you do ministry.In this book, learn how you, your family and church can:
- Discover ten vital relational needs common to everyone.
- Understand how to practically meet people’s real relational needs.
- Become a loving and compassionate community.
- Live out a Spirit-empowered faith of imparting the life and love of Jesus.“Most of us have read too many books, attended too many meetings and gone through too many courses only to conclude: We’re still unchanged, know we are unchanged and the people in our lives can see that we are unchanged. It is time to trust God for something different…a movement of Spirit-empowered transformation.” Dr. David Ferguson, The Great Commandment Network
