The DNA of the Church is Apostolic Christianity. DNA contains genetic information. When it's turned on, that information is expressed.
One of the key aspects of Apostolic DNA is an emphasis upon the Word or Kingdom teaching. "They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer" (Acts 2:42 NASB).
Authoritative teaching is an outflow of Jesus' Great Commission in Matthew 28: "... teaching them to observe all that I commanded you."
It's vital that we are established in truth. And we are to "contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints" (Jude 3).
Remember, the written Word always points to the Living Word -- Jesus Christ. "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these (the Scriptures) that testify about Me" (Jesus in John 5).
- Fully appreciate the primacy and value of the inspired Scriptures in your life.
- Prioritize the Word as you quest after Jesus. Everything else works better as we value the Word. It's a key part of the way we fulfill our destiny.
- Anchor yourself in truth and doctrine, yet know that it all points to a Person -- Jesus the Living Word.
