What makes a great church?
Is it a nice large building? Is it how much money it raises, or how many members it has? As guest speaker for New St. James’ 150th Anniversary, Rev. Chanson Newborn delivers a message that says that non of those things make a great church.
In this message, he says that Paul in the Bible identified four marks of a great church. A great church has members who act like they have heavenly citizenship.
A great church is one that honors the Gospel of Christ though how they behave. A great church stands fast and firm as one body and not be divided.
A great church is also one that remains courageous in times when their faith is under attack.
Newborn encourages members at New St. James to continues to display the marks of a great church for the next 150+ years.
