A Topical Sermon
“The Regulative Principle”
Big Idea: Jesus rules His church through His Word in the Bible.
Application: Pray that God would help us to rightly honor Him by not going beyond what He has said in the Bible together in our church. God’s Word is authoritative for all of life, and this morning we’re specifically considering how it is authoritative for the gathering of the local church.
(1) God’s Word Alone Binds the Conscience
(2) God’s Word Commands Membership & Attendance with a Local Church
(3) We Cannot Go Beyond What Is Written
(4) The Centrality of the Bible in the Life of the Church
