Marks of a Healthy Christian Church

Scripture: Acts 11

Acts 11:19-30

READ THE PASSAGE TOGETHER AS A GROUP AND DISCUSS THESE QUESTIONS

1) What is so significant about this new community called the church (A gathering of Christians) in the time of Acts ?  

Look at Galatians 3:27-28  How might our churches reflect this today?

 

2) What are some evidence of God's grace as mentioned by the speaker?  

Look at 1 Cor 1:4   Do you see these evidences of God's grace in your Care Group and in church?  Explain.

 

3) A mark of a healthy Christian church is one where there is teaching and discipleship. V. 26  

Look at Colossians 2:6-7  What steps are you personally going to take to be rooted and built up in Him? Share your plan.  

 

4) The 4th mark of a healthy Christian church is "Mercy Ministry" - sharing the grace of God with those outside our community.

What plans do you have personally to be involved in mercy ministry either outside or in a church ministry at CDPC?

 

Close with prayer for one another.
