Pastor Brian has been preaching a series of messages through the book of Acts. In this message, Brian explores 5 traits exhibited by the early church that shows the health of the church. By these 5 signs, we can evaluate churches today to see how healthy or unhealthy a church may be. If a church is healthy, it is important for that church to take steps to ensure continued health. If a church is unhealthy, it is important for that church to take steps to become a healthy body.
5 Signs of a Healthy Church
- A healthy church holds the sign of APOSTOLIC THEOLOGY (2:42a, 43).
- A healthy church holds the sign of UNITED FELLOWSHIP (2:42b, 44-45).
- A healthy church holds the sign of JOYFUL WORSHIP (2:42c, 46).
- A healthy church holds the sign of DEVOTED PRAYER (2:42d, 46).
- A healthy church holds the sign of INTENTIONAL EVANGELISM (2:47).
