5 Marks of a Biblical Church by C. Matthew McMahon
Scripture furnishes Christ’s blood-bought church with everything it needs to worship God effectively with the greatest degree of honor (John 4:24). The holy exaltation of God by his people is vital to giving him high praise in glorifying Christ in their worship before his uncompromising majesty. Such a congregation of holy worshippers have certain qualities that distinguish them from the world. In such a distinction, there are five non-negotiable marks of a biblical church without which, a church unchurches itself. These marks not only aid Christians to discern the nature of a healthy church, but differentiate the Spirit empowered qualities of a biblical church from that which is false.
From 1 Tim. 3:14-15, McMahon explains what it means for the church to conduct itself in God’s house, “which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.” He biblically and historically sets down the five invariable marks of the church:
Mark 1: Biblical Preaching Through Sound Doctrine
Mark 2: Biblical Administration of the Sacraments
Mark 3: Biblical Administration of Church Discipline
Mark 4: Biblical Leadership
Mark 5: Biblical Worship
