"Membership in the family of God is neither inconsequential nor something to be casually ignored. The church is God's agenda for the world. Jesus said, 'I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.' The church is indestructable and will exist for eternity. It will outlive this universe, and so will your role in it."
-- Rick Warren
