Practical Atheist - Be the Church

Mark Sherratt started a great new teaching series at MKCC on Sunday. Based on the book Christian Atheist The PB by Craig Groschel, Mark really brought the heat.

Its based on the premise that sometimes as Christians although we believe in God we don't live like we do!

Mark's message was "I believe in God but not His Church."

Here are some of the highlights:

  • As a Christian it's easier to talk the talk than it is to live the life.
  • The church is dear to the heart of God.
  • Thinking that we just GO to church rather than BE the church gives us a consumer mentality.
  • The Church of Jesus Christ is a picture of participation not spectators.
  • When you see something not being done do it. That may be the call of God on your life.
  • You are part of God's church by doing not just attending.
  • Every need in the church can be met by the church. it's not rocket science it's easy you just have to die.
  • The power of the church is released when people become the "Ministers" and grasp the one anothers of the Bible: praying, caring, meeting needs etc etc.
  • Church keeps growing when people who are already part of it realise that the church exists for the people outside it.
Watch the whole message here.
