Citizens of Heaven: In the World But Not Of

Speakers: Matt Chandler Year: 2018 Session: Main Session

How do we live morally without falling into moralism? Matt Chandler argues that Christians must live in holy conformity to God’s revealed will for human flourishing. Yet, this holy living comes from an internal transformation effected by the Spirit through the gospel. The Sermon on the Mount gives us a picture of what that grace-driven, Christ-centered, Spirit-empowered life looks like.


Matt Chandler serves as lead pastor for teaching at The Village Church in Dallas, Texas. He assumed this role in August 2002 after several years of serving on a local church staff and as an itinerant preacher. Matt is involved in church planting around Dallas and across the world through The Village Church and other partnerships such as Acts 29, at which he serves as president. He is the author of The Mingling of Souls, The Explicit Gospel, and Creature of the Word. He and his wife, Lauren, live with their three children in Highland Village, Texas.
