Distinguishing Marks of a Kingdom Reflecting Church
Christ's vision of God's kingdom should be the rudder that guides all that the Church is and does. It is therefore essential to the Church's mission that its members, both individually and corporately, live in ways that reflect that kingdom. The Church's ability to be salt and light that draws all people to God is riding on it.
"Distinguishing Marks of a Kingdom Reflecting Church" is a worksheet that compiles, from Jesus' teaching in the Gospels and the apostles' instruction in NT letters, a list of core kingdom attributes. I developed this resource for use in the church and the college classroom. I have used it both to teach people what God's kingdom is like and to help churches and their leaders discern what kind of church God is calling them to be.
