9Marks at Southeastern - Membership from Southeastern Seminary on Vimeo.
September 26-27, 2014 is the 6th Annual 9Marks Conference at Southeastern. This years theme is membership and answering the questions: What is it? Where is it in the Bible? Why is it important? These conferences never disappoint and I am looking forward to attending myself for the first time in three years. Below is some general info and be sure to go here for more information.
According to the Bible, church membership is a commitment every Christian should make to attend, love, serve and submit to a local church. Throughout Old Testament history, God made a clear distinction between his people and the world. The New Testament explicitly refers to some people being inside the church and some people being outside. Biblical church membership is important because the church presents God’s witness to himself in the world and displays his glory.
Speakers include Danny Akin, Thabiti Anyabwile, Alistair Begg, Mark Dever, Ligon Duncan andJonathan Leeman.
