Title: Teaching a Biblical Theology of the Church at Hanover Fellowship Church, Hanover, Pennsylvania
Author: Cruise, Charles Edward
Advisor: Hamilton, James M
Abstract: Church members were taught a biblical theology of the church, with the aim that their commitment to the church would increase. Chapter 1 presents the purpose, goals, context, rationale, definitions, and limitations of the project.

Chapter 2 discusses the biblical theology of the church. This chapter develops the identity, nature, and mission of the church from a biblical-theological perspective.

Chapter 3 surveys alternative models for increasing commitment to the church. A discussion of how some models may compromise biblical ecclesiology is included.

Chapter 4 outlines the sermons and discipleship lessons used in the project. This chapter also includes preliminary results from the instruments used to measure change.

Chapter 5 provides an evaluation of the project goals, along with its strengths and weaknesses. This project contends that a valid method for increasing commitment in a church is to teach members a biblical perspective regarding their identity and roles.
