David Reagan — The Bible Driven Church
What kind of church do you attend? Is it market driven? Purpose driven? Tradition bound? Or do you attend a church that is based on God’s Word and led by the Holy Spirit? For a great presentation about the importance of a Bible driven church, stay tuned.
Greetings in the name of Jesus, our Blessed Hope, and welcome to Christ in Prophecy. For the past few weeks we have been in the process of showing you excerpts from sermons presented at our recent Bible conference which was dedicated to the theme of, “Spiritual Apostasy in the End Times.” One of those presentations was entitled, “The Bible Driven Church.”
It was made by Mike Gendron who is considered to be an outstanding expert on Christian Doctrine. Mike is the founder and director of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministries located in the Dallas, Texas area. Before establishing his ministry in 1991, Mike was a very successful businessman. Although he had gone to church all his life, he did not have a personal relationship with the Lord.
When he finally found the Lord, he gave up his business career, entered Dallas Theological Seminary, and then began to teach and preach about Christian doctrine. Mike began his presentation at our conference by pointing out that the Bible Driven Church has been replaced by the Seeker-Sensitive Church, the Market Driven Church, the Purpose Driven Church, the Emerging Church and the Tradition Bound Church. He then proceeded to present nine characteristics of a Bible driven church. As he presents these, check them against the church you attend.
