No matter what stage of life we are in, every believer needs to understand the link between the faith that we profess and the lifestyle that should characterize us. The challenge isn't to blend in with the culture, but by our distinctiveness, to adorn the gospel. In Titus 2:1-5, Paul begins this instruction in Christian living with the older generation of men and women, whose stage in life presents new responsibilities and opportunities to influence those around them.

The Basics 2012 Pastor’s Conference at Parkside Church was marked by a clear call for pastors to devote themselves to prayer and ministry of the Word. Teaching from Acts 6, pastors were encouraged to revisit the apostles’ theological decision to preach the Gospel, leaving the task of feeding widows to competent men in the church. While many today find themselves consumed by the latest fad or new idea, Alistair Begg affirmed that preaching and prayer are the primary duties of the pastor. Mark Dever and Voddie Baucham joined Alistair Begg for the Basics 2012 Conference on May 14-16, 2012 at ...

Why is it so important that elders be men who know, teach, and live the truth? Titus 1:10-16 explains that it is a matter of spiritual life and death. Elders must be able to teach the truth so that the people under their care know sound doctrine and are able to distinguish counterfeits in their midst.

Closing out the Basics Conference 2012, Alistair Begg completes the exposition of Acts 6 by issuing a final and passionate call for the shepherd-pastor to be devoted to prayer and preaching the Word. These are not the only ministries of the church, but the ministry to which pastors are called. Prayer is private, corporate and public. Preaching is to believers and unbelievers and proclaims the love and justice of God.

As we continue in Titus 1:5-16, we learn that the qualifications given for church elders are both positive (characteristics they must have) and negative (characteristics that must not be true of them). But most important of all is that they have a wholehearted commitment to biblical truth.

Moving into the second chapter of Titus, it is helpful to focus first on what Paul says directly to this younger pastor, in verses 1, 7-8, and 15. The apostle's messsage is clear and consistent: teach sound doctrine - with dignity and integrity, with good works and godly character, and with the authority given by God himself.

Speaking to pastors, Mark Dever outlined the characteristics that distinguish a healthy church from an unhealthy church. He detailed what he has termed “the 9 Marks” of differentiation: expositional preaching, the Gospel, biblical theology, a biblical understanding of conversion, evangelism, church membership, discipline, concern for promoting discipleship and growth, and a biblical understanding of church leadership.

scripture Ezekiel 1

id GS1042

Mark Dever, Senior Pastor at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., takes us behind the scenes of Scripture with Ezekiel as he receives his first vision in Ezekiel 1. Dever explains that preaching is firmly rooted not in a first century cultural expression but rather in the fact that we serve a God who speaks to us. Drawing five observations of God from Ezekiel’s vision, Dever presents a magnificent image of who God, the One who speaks to us, truly is.
