Do you attend a healthy church? Alistair Begg describes four marks that determine if a church is healthy: it must be continually learning, sharing, worshipping and growing. Biblical teaching, loving fellowship, living worship, and ongoing evangelism are the foundation for a healthy church.
42And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
Who or what is the Church? Some might think there are more pressing issues to address in today’s world, but there’s no question that the word ‘church’ conjures up all kinds of images. Indeed, it is a word which is very often misunderstood.
By examining passages from several books of the New Testament, Alistair Begg provides clarity on topic of the Church by explaining the nature, origin, and leadership of the Church, the relationship of individuals to the Body of Christ and to local congregations, and the marks of a healthy church fellowship. In all of these areas, we are reminded that Christ Himself is the head of the Church, and it is only in submission to His authority that the Church functions as it ought and flourishes as He intends. Whatever our starting point, this series of studies will bring us to realize just how vitally relevant and crucial the Church is for the 21st century.
