A Vibrant, Dynamic Church
Nov 1st, 2006


  1. Accurate, thorough, faithful, Spirit-filled, exposition of the Word of God. The Word of God feeds the soul, and brings spiritual satisfaction and growth, and it creates a greater appetite for the Word, and makes vibrant, dynamic Christians (1 Peter 2:2, 5:2a)
  2. Regular answers to prayer in individual lives and in the life of the Church. Answered prayer causes joy and rejoicing and builds the faith of all. (John 14:13)
  3. The continual testifying of God’s power in the life of believers. The sharing of what God has done in a life will encourage others and give hope and anticipation that they too can experience God’s power in their lives. (1 Thess 5:18)
  4. The salvation of souls that are added to the local church

When souls are saved, it brings joy and rejoicing to the whole church and it stimulates others to witness. (Psalm 126:6)

The Five Fundamentals of the Faith: (to which Dr. Warrren objected)

  1. The inerrancy and full authority of the Bible.
  2. The virgin birth and full deity of Jesus Christ
  3. The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead
  4. Christ’s atoning, vicarious death for the sins of the world
  5. The literal second coming of Jesus.

Rick Warren, in rejecting these five fundamentals is rejecting the very essence of Christianity.
