9 Marks of a Healthy Church

There are all sorts of lists like this:
9 Marks of a Healthy Church
  1. Expositional Preaching
  2. Biblical Theology
  3. The Gospel
  4. Conversion
  5. Evangelism
  6. Membership
  7. Church Discipline
  8. Discipleship
  9. Church Leadership
Someone else has come up with the
9 Marks of our Mission House Church: keith giles
  1. Giving 100% of our money to the poor
  2. Love for one another
  3. Love for others
  4. Making disciples
  5. Serving others
  6. Encouraging one another
  7. Knowing and using our spiritual gifts to bless one another
  8. Sharing meals together
  9. Learning to be the family of God.
It seems to me that the 2nd is a lot more biblical and theological, even though they don't use those words.
