Helping local churches wake up and grow healthy so they can live again!

Each member church becomes a part of the church revitalization movement spreading across North America and the world.

How we got started . . .

This network was created by Dr. Thom Rainer and the Church Answers family. Our hope is to create connections that enable healthier churches to help struggling churches. We believe churches working with a spirit of collaboration instead of competition will change lives and communities. Our team of revitalization practitioners offers the professional resources of a national denomination with the personal relationship of a local church network. No church should have to travel the road to revitalization alone! We want to walk with you!

  • Does Revitalize Network help churches from all denominations?

    Yes, we are broadly evangelical and value collaboration from like-minded partners to serve vulnerable churches. Our network includes churches from a variety of backgrounds.

  • Do you have a doctrinal statement?

    Yes, the following points summarize our doctrine:

    • We believe the Old Testament and New Testament Scriptures are the inspired and infallible Word of God. God’s Word is the final authority for faith and life.
    • We believe there is only one God, and He has chosen to reveal Himself as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
      We believe people were created in the image of God and the sin of Adam (the first person) marred that image, creating an eternal divide between God and people. Every person is born in sin.
    • We believe the only way a person can have a true, forgiven relationship with God is through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary and conceived by the Holy Spirit. Jesus became man without ceasing to be God. Our right standing with God is made sure because of His literal, physical resurrection.
    • We believe in the literal, physical return of Jesus to judge the living and the dead.
    • We believe God offers eternal life as a free gift and that it must be received by faith alone through God’s grace alone.
    • We believe the church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of believers on mission to enlarge God’s kingdom.
  • Where is Revitalize Network located?

    We are based in Franklin, TN, part of the Nashville, TN metro area, but our team members are located all across North America.

  • What is the benefit to my church if we join Revitalize Network?

    Actually, members of Revitalize Network should see their membership as helping other churches first. This network was created so that healthier churches could help struggling churches. We believe churches working together in God’s power cannot be hindered.
