from Steve Swartz

In 2020, churches around the United States as well as other parts of the world were told to shut down along with other "non-essential" businesses or organizations due to the outbreak of Coronavirus. At first, when speculations predicted death rates in the many millions nationwide, most churches gladly complied for the sake of what was explained by governments officials as an effort to flatten the statistical death curve. This was to take place in a matter of weeks. But government help quickly turned to government overreach and the theological question was now at the forefront: What rights does the government have over the Church of Jesus Christ? The Essential Church chronicles one church's journey in this process, a journey beginning with cooperative compliance for the sake of public health to a theologically biblically based position that the government does not have the divine right to interfere with the worship function or content of the Church. It is hoped that this book will help give churches courage to be the ekklesia--the gathering of Christ no matter the cost or circumstances.
