A healthy church is a church in which every member--young and old, mature and immature--unites around the wonderful good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. Toward that end, this study pays close attention to the gospel as defined in Romans 1-4. Participants will learn the Bible's teaching on God, man, Christ, and our response, and see how these truths apply to the practices of the local church.
A series of ten 6-7 week studies covering the nine distinctives of a healthy church as originally laid out in Nine Marks of a Healthy Church by Mark Dever. This series explores the biblical foundations of key aspects of the church, helping Christians to live out those realities as members of a local body. Conveniently packaged and accessibly written, the format of this series is guided, inductive discussion of Scripture passages and is ideal for use in Sunday school, church-wide studies, or small group contexts.
