Characteristics of a Healthy Church

This message by guest preacher Bowden McElroy was delivered at Trinity Baptist Church on Sunday morning, March 22, 2009.

Am I contributing to the factors of what makes for a healthy church? In this message let’s look at three words that define a healthy church:

  1. Community: Church is suppose to provide a sense of community. 1Cor 12:12-20.
  2. Consensus: You cannot be a Christian in isolation. Debate on issues is not always fun, but it is always necessarty. Acts 15:6ff. Community doesn’t work without consensus.
  3. Accountability: Matthew 18:15-20.
