What Foundational Aspects To Look For In A Biblical Church?

This summer I preached “What Foundational Aspects to Look for in a Biblical Church?” from Matthew 16:13-28. What was originally intended as a single message became a three-part series. Even though I’ve been a practitioner of expository preaching for 14 years, I’m always amazed how deep, profound, and enriching God’s word is. In this text, there are seven foundational aspects. They are as follows:

  1. A true church is known by a great confession (vv. 13-16).
  2. A true church is known by a great communication (v. 17).
  3. A true church is known by a great contrast (v. 20).
  4. A true church is known by a great cross (v. 21).
  5. A true church is known by a great confrontation (vv. 22-23).
  6. A true church is known by a great cost (vv. 24-26).
  7. A true church is known by a great consummation (vv. 27-28).
