  "This strategy can help any church to fulfill its evangelistic purpose." - Rev. Billy Graham

  How to be a first century church in a 21st century world.

  What is Total Church Life (TCL)?

TCL is a strategy for evangelistic church growth without gimmicks. It shows a healthy body of Christ will: Exalt the Savior, Equip the Saints and Evangelize the Sinner. TCL shows churches how to emphasize conversion-growth by the Total Penetration of the church's community with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Total Penetration only can be accomplished through the Total Participation of the church membership. TCL is a practical strategy that can result in the evangelization of every person in the United States. It has proven so effective that thousands of churches and many state conventions have already adopted the strategy.

  Why teach TCL in my church?

TCL can help church leaders and members:

1. Create a strategy to reach the community for Jesus Christ.

2. Catch the vision to function as a New Testament church.

3. Launch the plateaued church into a growing church.

4. Change a declining church into a growing church.

5. Equip church members for evangelistic witness.

6. Increase baptisms.

  How much time will it take?

TCL is completely flexible to meet the needs of your congregation. The Teacher's Guide presents 6 flexible formats to present the material in eight 60-90 minute sessions.

  How does a church prepare for TCL?

-Pray for the church's receptivity to church growth

-Involve the church leaders

-Involve the church evangelism or mission development council.

- Order the materials and prepare to teach it to the congregation or contact the state evangelism director for a trained leader.

-Promote TCL training through announcements, brochures, the church newsletter, and through a testimony from a church where TCL has been successful. Use enrollment cards in the Sunday School.

it is a manual for God's work in the local church."
