I picked up “The Importance of the Local Church” by Thomas C. Terry, when he was visiting at our church some time ago. I had actually purchased several of his books and just got to this one. I plan on passing it on to someone who really needs to hear this truth. This is a great Biblical book that explains why we need a good local Church and our attendance, the importance of a sound Biblical Pastor, and how to find one. There are loads of scriptures to back up everything Pastor Terry says. I think it is a must read for every born again believer. I give this book 4 stars.
