The Marks of the True Church
Scriptural Fidelity
Acts 1:15-26

Acts 1:15-26 |
15 In those days Peter stood up
among the brothers (the company of persons
was in all about 120) and said, 16 “Brothers, the
Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit
spoke beforehand by the mouth of David
concerning Judas, who became a guide to those
who arrested Jesus…

Key Idea: A mark of the true church is that it
embraces scriptural fidelity as its guiding
principle and standard for practice, thus
preparing it for the gospel mission.

In scriptural fidelity, the true church…

1. acknowledges the priority of the Word of God.

2. applies the principles of the Word of God.

3. acts in response to the Word of God.

4. appeals for a Word from God.

5. accepts the Word from God.
