Brother Doug Barnes
I believe the church has a responsibility to lead the lost to salvation through Jesus Christ, to edify the saved, and to worship our Lord. Of these three, I believe winning the lost is of pre-eminent importance. It is necessary that a proper balance of these three be achieved.
I believe the church is to be Bible believing, Bible teaching, and Bible preaching. I believe that any time a preacher says the Bible says thus and so, but that is not what the Bible really means, it is time to get up and walk out of that church.
I believe outreach in obedience to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) is a requirement, not an option.
