The 9Marks Healthy Church Study Guides series explores the biblical foundations of key aspects of the church, helping Christians live out those realities as members of a local body. Conveniently packaged and accessibly written, this series offers guided, inductive discussion of Scripture passages; it’s ideal for use in Sunday school, church-wide studies, or small-group contexts. These volumes are dedicated to bringing the most out of church life and membership, uniting around the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ.
9Marks, as a ministry, has taken basic biblical teaching about the church and put it into the hands of pastors. Bobby, by way of these study guides, has taken this teaching and delivered it to the person in the pew. I am unaware of any other tool that so thoroughly and practically helps Christians understand God’s plan for the local church. I can’t wait to use these studies in my own congregation.

Bobby Jamieson has done local church pastors an incredible service by writing these study guides. Clear, biblical, and practical, they introduce the biblical basis for a healthy church. But more importantly, they challenge and equip church members to be part of the process of improving their own church’s health. The studies work for individual, small group, and larger group settings. I have used them for the last year at my own church and appreciate how easy they are to adapt to my own setting. I don’t know of anything else like them. Highly recommended!
