Mark Driscoll on the nature of a church

July 17, 2008

A.M. Metzger sent me this definition of the church today from Mark Driscoll. Andy said he’ll be blogging about it soon so I eagerly await his thoughts.

“The local church is a community of confessing believers in Jesus Christ who obey Scripture by organizing under qualified leadership, gather regularly for preaching and worship, and scatter to evangelize and care for people everywhere. They observe the Biblical sacraments of baptism and
communion, are unified by the Spirit for mission in the world, and discipled to live out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission to the glory of God.”

By the way, the Mars Hill podcast now has a great message about preaching from Mark Driscoll, and when I can find the link I will post it here.
