Helping Our Churches to Be More Outward Focused (1 Thessalonians 1:1–10)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We live in an age in which God’s glory was must be driven through gospel-centred, Christ-centred, God-glorifying churches. For this to happen, the gospel must go to people in word, power and the Holy Spirit—and with full assurance. Our churches need to be more outward focused if this will happen, and three things are required for a church to be outward focused: The church must be gospel-drive, must have elders who are among people for their good, and must have elders that the church can imitate.

This sermon, based on 1 Thessalonians 1:1–10, was preached at the third session of the 2018 annual Sola 5 Conference, hosted by Brackenhurst Baptist Church in Alberton, South Africa.

The conference also featured messages from Phil Hunt (Kitwe Church), Sammy Leballo (Moletsane Baptist Church), Conrad Mbewe (Kabwata Baptist Church), Tyrell Haag (Heritage Baptist Church), and Chris Woolley (Midrand Chapel).

Mario Maneville is a pastor at Reformed Faith Mission Community Church in Belville South, South Africa.

Being Intentional in Planting Self-Governing Churches (Acts 14:23–26)

To be faithful in the mission that Christ has given to his church, we need to be deliberate and intentional in planting self-governing churches. It is one thing to respond to requests from people to plant works where there is need, but there is need for our churches to be intentional in targeting strategic areas that need healthy, biblical churches.

Scripture References: Acts 14:23-26
