Core markers of Gospel Community must be Gospel centric teaching and prayer. As we examine the New Testament church we understand more and more that as God’s Word was declared the people grew in their understanding of the glory of Jesus. God’s Word continues to be the imparting truth that we need. Gospel teaching and prayer are to be fundamental elements of those pursuing Christ. Growing in God’s Word and communicating with Him are to be as natural as breathing for the life of the follower of Christ.
