The setting: the groundbreaking ceremony of the new Saratoga, New York, Seventh-day Adventist Church. 

Why Saratoga? Are not hundreds of Seventh-day Adventist churches constructed each year? Why a story about this one church? 

The House That God Built is not really the story of the Saratoga church—but the stories of several of its individual members. Through flashbacks, the author takes us back into the lives of several who are gathered at the groundbreaking, tracing the clear and often miraculous leading of God in bringing them together at a particular place and time. 

When God builds a house, it is more than lumber and plaster—it is people. Men and women may work to erect a church building. But it takes God to build a church.
