(The Book of Acts)

For 2,000 years the church has been a movement of God's people in this world. So how do WE keep this movement going?

(Acts 15:5-20)

How can we "not make it hard" for those turning to God?

Christ told his apostles to take the Gospel message to every nation (Matt 28:19-20), but he did not mean only to the Jews in those nations. He meant that the Gospel was for everyone. But did he mean that Gentile believers were to become Jewish? This was a very serious question for the apostles because Jesus was the Messiah that God had promised to the Jews, and the early church was comprised mostly of Jews. This message looks at the key issues highlighted in this passage that deal with how the early church dealt with Gentiles who were becoming Christians in a church culture born initially out of the Jewish faith. It still applies today.

(Acts 11:19-26)

We should never be surprised at who God loves and wants to bring into His Church, or play God and decide not to talk to anyone because they are "outsiders". Instead, We need to pray for boldness and wisdom to welcome and encourage others in growing their faith in God.

(Acts 4:32-5:-11, 1Cor 10:1-13)

In the early chapters of the book of Acts, we see the Church as a wholesome community of people following Jesus' instructions to love one another. Everything is going great... and then comes Chapter 5. What is up with this scary story of Ananias and Sapphira? Why doesn't this one get much air time in church?

(Acts 3&4)

When the early church faced threats for preaching about Jesus they didn't pray for protection or safety. They prayed for boldness.
