My notes to share, from the message "Activate" taught by Dr. Allan Bagg

I thank God that we are in a Church where the "Set Man" (Senior Pastor) teaches the full and uncompromising Word of God (Bible). As part of the family of God in a local body (Church) I like to always expound on what was taught and build my faith. That is also why we discuss Sunday's Word in Home Cell at The Bay Christian Family Church, to also focus on application and practicing what we were taught.

Here are some of my thoughts after this weekends services. I trust you can use it in Home Cell and also for further study:

Activate Body of Christ

Title: "Activate"

Subtitle: 'Understanding church government, and your role in your local church.'

1 Cor. 12:12
• God sets each one where they need to be.
• We should all desire the "best gift. Which gift is that? The one you need at the right time.
• Do not place unnecessary expectation on someone. Establish your expectation on the Word of God.
• "I am a member of the body of Christ, but I am not independent."
• What is my role in the Church? (Leaders; Members; Pastors; Staff...):

[Dr. Allan will be explaining this to us from the Word, for the next few weeks.]

(ROLE ONE) - The Senior Pastor

  • He is after the "heart of God" and not the "heart of men".
  • Visionary Leader (Ex. 18:14+; Acts 6:3):

(1) Prays for the people
(2) Teacher of the Word and Spiritual Leader

  • Communicate to the people what he hears from God:

(1) Visionary (show the way..)
(2) Set a plan (show them the work..)
(3) Delegate the work (select men)
(4) Release them (let them do work)
Jeremiah 3:15 "I will give you shepherds.."


  • Will always follow Gods voice and not the peoples voice.
  • "Teach-Feed" not "Teach-Tend"
  • Jeremiah 23:4 "fold" = The sheep "fold" as revered to here, is more speaking of a structure like a fortress, not a "flock". This shepherd's heart is to make sure we are: Fruitful; Increasing and Fed; not dismayed and lacking nothing.

Part 2 below


 I call this "Part 2" because Dr. Allan still amazed us with continuing with (ROLE ONE, as above)

(Pls. see "PART 1" on my blog above.)

(Here are some points that was recapped, although Dr. Allan spend a lot of time going over what was taught previously, emphasizing the role of the Shepherd/Pastor. He stated; "the reason I'm teaching this is not for me, but for you." It's vital for us to know where we fit into Gods structure of authority today. God is a God of order.)

• As the body of Christ, our first priority is to seek and save those who are lost.
• A household (Church) needs to be in order. We all need to know our place; call or activity. We all have a responsibility.
God gives us our shepherds (Pastor), we don't shop around for one. Let's follow His "heart" and leading. (Jeremiah 3:15)
• Our shepherd feeds us with "knowledge and understanding".
• The shepherd teaches us "knowledge" and "understanding".
• Pastor defined is "One who feeds sheep".
Be careful of what you expect of your Pastor and why God put them in our lives. (1) People should "seek" the Word and guidance of God.
"For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, And people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts." Mal. 2:7
• Some things you might not have if you don't have a Pastor. (Eph. 4:12+)
(1) "God Himself gave...for the equipping.." - If I don't have a Pastor I won't be equipped.
(2) "for the work of ministry" - If I don't have a Pastor, I won't succeed in my call, because I won't be equipped for it.
(3) "unity of the faith" - If I don't have a Pastor, we won't experience unity in Faith.
(4) "every wind of doctrine" - If I don't have a Pastor, I won't have truth or set doctrine. A Pastor will speak the "truth in love".
Growth of the body comes when "each part does its share." (Eph. 4)

(Dr. Allan started sharing these points with us from a powerful book. He gave recognition to Dr. Mark as the author and is a partner with him ministry. He ran out of time and so, we are looking forward to him continuing this after Come Celebrate '13)

Dr. Mark Barkley '7 Ways to Relate to our Pastor':
(1) Receive your Pastor as they are a gift from God. Especially if you don't agree with them, as long as they teach the full Word of God. The Pastor and the member fills a part of a team of God. "It's amazing how many people know how to run a church, that's never run one." The same as the role of a Doctor, we might not agree with what they are doing, but they know what we need and we need to receive their gift. (Eph. 4:11)

Amazing clip below! Look at this in context of, you being the lamb and your Shepherd/Pastor looking after you...

Here is "Part 2", if you haven't read "Part 1" yet, pls. do so and share it. Thank you for your support. In a few hours we had more than a hundred hits. You want to bookmark these two posts as you will need it in the future for yourself or someone else.

Remember this is not a magic trick or formula. We need to speak these over our lives and families and believe it with our hearts. The power of the Word of God is in the capsules called Faith. They are life to us...the great news is, we cannot overdose! We can take as much as we need!


(I know it's a lot, but it's great to have as reference)
