Church Unity

9Marks is taking us to school on church unity. The new ejournal is out and it's loaded with some excellent contributions.

Living As A Church: A short class on living together as a local church.

If you’ve never provided your congregation with an opportunity to meditate together on what it means to live together as a church, we hope you’ll take a look at this material. Teach it yourself; let a young man you’re discipling teach it; or let it prompt you to write your own class.
Class I: Introduction
Class II: Church Membership
Class III: Preaching
Class IV: Corporate Prayer
Class V: Church Government
Class VI: Fellowship
Class VII: Discontentment
Class VIII: Church Leadership
Class IX: Church Discipline
Class X: Encouragement
Class XI: Serving and Giving
Class XII: Worship
Class XIII: Corporate Evangelism
