A Biblical Rationale for Preaching Invitations

The Northwest Regional Fellowship of the FBFI concluded last night. One of the closing messages was a strong rationale for preaching invitations, delivered by our host pastor, Steve Hicks of Galilee Baptist Church in Kent, WA.

Invite Them to Come (Mt 11.28)

Steve Hicks, Galilee Baptist Church

  1. An invitation is appropriate after a sermon because it maintains a theological balance (Rm 10.9-17)
  2. An invitation is appropriate after a sermon because it supports a sermon’s purpose (Ac 2.36-40)
  3. An invitation is appropriate after a sermon because it follows a Biblical example (Mt 11.28)
  4. An invitation is appropriate after a sermon because it encourages authentic worship (Mt 15.8-9; Isa 29.13)

We had several other outstanding messages each day, we regret that recordings are unavailable. The meetings were outstanding, the fellowship was a blessing.

We encourage you to seek out a regional fellowship meeting near you, and especially encourage you to attend our National Fellowship in Indianapolis this summer.
