Why does Grace COmmunity CHurch of the rogue valley exist?
As we examine the Scriptures, we see three core reasons for why our church – why any church – should exist!
You may be wondering what a person should look for in a church. Rather than the idea of “what do I want to see in a church” perhaps we should be considering what God wants in His Church. We believe that the Lord has not been silent on the matter. In fact, we believe there are several distinguishing marks of church health that the Word of God addresses.
1. Sound Doctrine
2. Expository Preaching
3. A Biblical Understanding of the Good News
4. A Biblical Understanding of Conversion
5. A Biblical Understanding of Evangelism
6. A Biblical Understanding of Church Membership
7. A Biblical Understanding of Church Discipline
8. A Biblical Understanding of Discipleship & Church Growth
9. A Biblical Understanding of Church Leadership/Eldership
10. A Commitment to the Authority & Sufficiency of Scripture
Dr. Parker Reardon has taught a series of Sunday School lessons on these distinguishing marks of healthy churches. For the lessons and handouts, visit our pastor’s personal website at Biblical Expositor.
