A contemplation of all things church... and a desire for an increasingly pure church reformed by the word of God.

What Are You Looking for in Elders?
Greg Gilbert over at Church Matters has offered the first in a series of posts called "What We're Looking for in Elders." It's an outline of a talk he and some of the elders at Third Avenue Baptist in Louisville shared with the congregation a little while back. Promises to be a thoughtful collection of posts.
I love the Lord because He first loved me. I love His people because He has given me a new heart. I have received God's favor in the form of my wife, Kristie. And together we know His blessing through three children. I was once a Muslim, and by God's grace I have been saved through faith in Jesus Christ. By God's unfathomable grace I am a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in which I hope to serve Him until He returns or calls me home!
