David Bercot, in numerous books and sermons, presents several characteristics that help to define what it means to be a Kingdom Christian. Those characteristics include:
- A Kingdom Christian recognizes that he has entered the Kingdom of God, and as such his priorities should now be focused on eternal things. Entering the Kingdom of God gives a person an eternal focus. He seeks to follow God’s eternal laws, leading an eternal lifestyle with an eternal set of priorities.
- A Kingdom Christian is focused on more than just being saved – his focus is on how he can serve his King. He is committed to living by the teachings of Jesus.
- A Kingdom Christian realizes that he has a new job, which is promoting the Kingdom of God.
