Abstract

In an attempt to supply guidelines to equip contemporary South African congregations by means of preaching, basis-theoretical material from Acts 20:17-38 is investigated. In this process the term preaching, as well as the goal, primacy and effect of preaching is also illuminated. Furthermore the fact that the Word of God has power to build up the congregation thoroughly because the Word is inspired (God-breathed) is highlighted. Acts of teaching, rebuking, correcting and training are regarded as main features of preaching in equipping the congregation. In conclusion, practice-theoretical guidelines for equipping the congregation by means of preaching in the present situation are presented.
