  4. A “Sound” Church( Our Standard ) • A church may be “sound” (or “conservative”) because of the above, but those things alone do not determine “soundness” (Lk. 18:11) • Consider the church at Corinth, was it “sound” (1 Cor. 1-15)? • Consider the churches of Asia, were they “sound” (Rev. 2-3)

  5. A “Sound” Church( The Bible Definition ) • “Sound” (Gr. hugies, hugiano) means healthy, whole, uncorrupt (Eng. “hygiene”) • The NT speaks of “sound”… • Doctrine (1 Tim. 1:10; 2 Tim. 4:3; Tit. 1:9; 2:1) • Words (1 Tim. 6:3; 2 Tim. 1:13) • Faith (Tit. 1:13; 2:2) • Speech (Tit. 2:8)
