For the Purity of the Church, Part 1

1 Corinthians 5:1–8

For the Purity of the Church, Part 1
00:00 00:00

Three Gospel realities behind church discipline:

  • Gospel Story (1 Corinthians 15:2, Romans 6:1-2) 
  • Gospel Call (Mark 1:15) 
  • Gospel Identity (1 Corinthians 1:2) 


Main idea: Practice church discipline for the salvation of a soul and the purity of the church.

  1. Grieve, don’t tolerate sin. (5:1-2)
  2. Carry out restorative discipline. (5:3-5)
    • Matthew 18:13-20
  3. Diligently seek the purity of the church. (5:6-8)



  • Am I giving internal and private sins room to grow?
  • If I see continual, willful, stubborn sin, do I know what do?
  • How am I praying for my purity and the purity of the church?
