Notes from Advance09-Mark Driscoll-Day 1

I’m going to be posting my notes from the conference..I’m not a great note-taker but hopefully someone else can get something out of them as well and be blessed…

What is the Church?-Start with Who is Jesus?

What does it mean?

-Church is on a mission/Jesus is on a mission
-Say no to sin, Yes to God
-Holy Spirit Empowered

*THe preaching of God’s word precedes everything a church does.
*Get over your fear of man issues!!
*Your job is to preach the Gospel
*You must love your people.
*Preach Jesus as He is–Exalted!
-God is better that ALL earthly pleasures.
*Proclaim facts, not perspectives

CHRISTIANITY IS AN ONGOING ACT OF REPENTENCE

*God likes to save people…
(Stop doing, start receiving)-all things are a gift from God.

What is a church?
-Jesus’ people empowered by the Holy Spirit
-Regenerated Church membership-Regeneration is the big issue
-Qualified leadership/humble leadership
-Gathering for preaching and worship/Jesus is always the center.
-Sacraments rightly administered/Take a few hours for Jesus-JESUS IS A PRIORITY!!
-Unified by the Spirit
-Church discipline-Discipline for Holiness
-Obey commandments to love-love one another/Spirit lead generosity
-Obey great commission-evangelize the nations.. GO!

Church exists to make disciples and evangelize.

-The people(Flock) are the missionaries.
-The church is both gathered and Scattered.
-Maybe you need to do less programs?
-Distinguish bethween biblical principle and cultural method.
(Maybe small groups should discuss the Sunday Sermon?)-Great Idea…
Christ isn’t just an example, He is a substitute.

Be Faithful, not cool.

IT’S ALWAYS ABOUT JESUS!
it IS ALWAYS about JESUS!
