For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. - Romans 1:16

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear. - 1 Peter 3:15

Today we conclude our 10-part series, What Does It Mean to be a Scripture-Driven Church? In our final segment, we'll discuss the last two of the seven marks of a Scripture-driven church. The people and leaders of a Scripture-driven church:

6. Practice Bible-based evangelism, preaching the one true Gospel in its fullness.

7. Answer anti-Christian positions with apologetics - a clear, Biblical defense of the faith - not apologies.

We'll also look at the Bible's answer to a final important question: What can God do through a church that is driven by His Word, and how can this solve the crisis the nations are in today?
