Lord Help Us To Be Like That Church


Pastor's Sermon Points 07-23-17


Scripture Text: Acts 2:41-47 NLT
SUBJECT: Lord Help Us Be Like That Church
INTRODUCTION: I challenge your hearts this morning with the thought that a healthy church will have (Five E's) working in the midst of its membership.
A healthy church is one that will be:
    • Exalting the Lord through God-centered worship that magnifies Him.
    • Edifying the Body of Christ through preaching, teaching, and discipleship.
    • Evangelizing the lost through the proclamation of the Gospel at home and abroad.
    • Encouraging one another though relationships that reflect a commitment to demonstrating the love of Christ.
    • Equipping one another with the right attitudes and tools so that each member is involved in ministering to others.
