9Marks exists to equip church leaders with a biblical vision and practical resources for displaying God’s glory to the nations through healthy churches. To that end, we want to see churches characterized by these nine marks of health: Preaching, Biblical Theology, The Gospel, Conversion, Evangelism, Membership, Discipline, Discipleship, and Leadership.
THE WITNESS BCC
The Witness is a black Christian collective that engages issues of religion, race, justice, and culture from a biblical perspective. We are changing the way Christians engage the church and the world by challenging them to think and act according to the holistic message of Christ. We consciously draw on the expansive black church tradition to address matters of personal faith while also speaking to issues of public righteousness. We believe that the Christian message applies not only to our eternity but also to our present-day circumstances and lived reality.
We aim to help people everywhere embrace a profound truth that changes everything about life and eternity:
You were created for something greater than yourself. You were formed for something awesome and magnificent.
You were made to know glory — God’s glory. And the deepest longings of the human heart can be fully satisfied by pursuing that glory. In fact, God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.
As you share the gospel with friends, neighbors, coworkers and more, you may encounter questions about your faith and other religions. Find answers to the most common questions here.
It is helpful to understand and share the logical implications of the Christian worldview and contrasted with alternate worldviews, clarifying the Christian position in light of misunderstandings and misrepresentations; answering objections, criticisms, or questions from non-Christians; and in general clearing away various intellectual difficulties that may stand in the way of one coming to faith. This is undergirded by the Biblical understanding that Christianity is not known by reason alone. Christianity is not merely accepting truth claims about Christ, realizing the personal dimension in every person coming to faith in Christ.
