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:

1) Expositional Preaching
2) Biblical Theology
3) The Gospel
4) Conversion
5) Evangelism
6) Membership
7) Discipline
8) Discipleship
9) Leadership

What Does 9Marks Do?

“At 9Marks, we write books, articles, and book reviews. We host conferences, record interviews, and consult with church leaders. In short, we do everything we can to help pastors, future pastors, and church members see what a biblical church looks like, and to take practical steps for becoming one.

In the first years of the organization’s life, Mark Dever’s voice was the sole public voice. Yet the principles are biblical, and a small movement of church leaders are jumping in to write and speak.”

Gospel Life Church & 9Marks

Gospel Life Church can be found on the 9Marks church directory. This means Gospel Life Church is part of a network of churches who self-identify with the 9Marks organization, are in full agreement with and seek to pursue the nine marks of a healthy church as listed above, and who agree with TG4’s Affirmations and Denials.
