Church Matters

Recently, our pastor, associate pastor, and I have begun working on our church constitution/by-laws/covenant/statement of faith, and I have been digging around a little in some of the examples posted below. 9 Marks, a ministry of Mark Dever, pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church, I recently discovered, has launched a new blog called Church Matters, and several posters on that blog are current or former Cliftonites like Dee Reju and Jonathan Leeman. Despite some playful banter, the blog seems dedicated to challenging discussions about what a biblical church should look like.

Sermon Soundtracks?

I recently visited Founders Ministries Blog to read about a recent theological conflict brewing in the Florida Baptist Convention, and I stumbled upon a link to Relevant Revolution. What is this "Relevant Revolution," you ask. Well, if you have ever watched a Hollywood blockbuster, you know that the soundtrack is one key element to the telling of the story. Interestingly, John Mahshie has merged engaging beats with biblical exposition from great preachers like Alistair Begg and John Piper. These sermons are aimed at today's culturally relevant unbelievers, and with them Mahshie is seeking to fulfill Romans 10:14. Check out Sermon Jams.

Maybe we can get Gabe home from the military and he can mix up some stuff for Roger's sermons. :)

Jamin' to the gospel of our Lord and King,
