Mark Driscoll (born October 11, 1970) is the founder and teaching pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Washington, co-founder of the Acts 29 Network, author, and columnist for the Faith and Values section of the Seattle Times.
Driscoll has not published anything outlining all his theological beliefs (such as a systematic theology), but his sermons, lectures, and books provide a good understanding of what Driscoll believes. Furthermore, a concise statement of what he does and does not believe can be found from his blog. In general, he is a conservative evangelical.
In a certain pastor's conference in August, 2005, Driscoll characterized himself as a "charismatic Calvinist" (audio, quote starts at 53 minutes in). He believes that all of the spiritual gifts are active today but only by God's divine intervention (he is not a cessationist) and is a five-point Calvinist (or as he describes a 'five-and-a-half point' (5.5) Calvinist, see Sermon: Unlimited-Limited Atonement). According to a July 4, 2006, interview in Christianity Today, Driscoll described the church he leads as "theologically conservative and culturally liberal" (see article: ). He is best-known for his views on missiology.
