What Is a Healthy Church? (IX Marks) (9 Marks of a Healthy Church)

What Is a Healthy Church? (IX Marks) (9 Marks of a Healthy Church)

What is an ideal church, and how can you tell?

How does it look different from other churches? More importantly, how does it act differently, especially in society? Many of us aren’t sure how to answer those questions, even though we probably have some preconceived idea. But with this book, you don’t have to wonder any more.

Author Mark Dever seeks to help believers recognize the key characteristics of a healthy church: expositional preaching, biblical theology, and a right understanding of the gospel. Dever then calls us to develop those characteristics in our own churches. By following the example of New Testament authors and addressing church members from pastors to pew sitters, Dever challenges all believers to do their part in maintaining the local church. What Is a Healthy Church? offers timeless truths and practical principles to help each of us fulfill our God-given roles in the body of Christ.

This video contains all the music of the service on February 12, 2012: first, the choir rehearses “There Is a Balm in Gilead,” arranged by William Dawson, before the service. Then there is the prelude, the processional, the psalm, the gradual hymn, the offertory, the Sanctus, the Agnus Dei, the communion music, the recessional, and the postlude. For the offertory, the choir, directed by Scott Hagler, performs There Is a Balm in Gilead,” arranged by William Dawson. This starts at 12:22, but the choir rehearses this same piece at the very beginning. The communion music is performed by Cheryl Birchard on the guitar. She sings and plays two pieces, “Healing Oil” by Lizotte (19:06)– and “Beauty for Ashes” by Lewis (23:31). The recessional leading into the postlude starts at 25:41, with the postlude itself at 27:57. For more information, see www.StMarksDurango.com
