    Elder, Baptist Church of the Redeemer

If you’d like to see an invitation to the conference from Jim Hamilton, click here.

Session I: 9:00 to 10:20am: What Is the Church?

  • Whose idea was the church?
  • Who do we let into the church?
  • Who should lead? (What is an elder, anyway?)
  • Who should serve? (Just what is a deacon?)
  • Who should be excluded? Why? (What does regenerate church membership mean?)
  • Does the church have any stated roles? (What is congregationalism?)
  • Where do we go for answers to these questions?
  • Can the church decide these issues for itself? (Does the Bible have anything to say?)
  • When is a church “apostate”? What keeps a church from being “apostate”?

    Session II: 10:30 to 11:50am: How Does the Church Militant Wage Her War?

  • Does Jesus care about any of this “church” stuff?
  • Did Jesus do “expository preaching”?
  • What if the leadership doesn’t teach the Bible? (Can formative discipline happen?)
  • What if the leadership won’t confront sin? (Can corrective discipline happen?)
  • What does it mean for the church to be God’s discipleship program?
  • What does it mean for the church to be God’s evangelism program?
  • Does this have anything to do with missions?
  • How should the church influence the culture? (Are we just another interest group?)
  • What difference does the church’s corporate witness make?

      Travis: Great session on Saturday. Thanks for your hospitality. Those unfortunate enough not to be there could greatly benefit by listening to the recordings. Are you planning to make them available?

    2. Mike,

      Thanks so much for your encouragement about the Institute. We are planning to launch a website for this and all future seminars. As soon as that website is up and running, I’ll post it here.

      Thanks again for your encouragement!
