CHURCH 1.0 - A study of the first church unleashed! - What Makes The Church Special
Can you imagine what it must have been like to be a part of the first-century church? To have experienced the power, passion, and boldness of people who took the gospel fearlessly to the four corners of the earth, defied the religious and political norms of the time, and not only impacted the world… but turned it upside down… for good.
It’s inspiring to say the least. Many of us may even want to be like those early believers who were fueled and empowered by the Holy Spirit… but sometimes we’re afraid to rock the boat or we settle for the status quo. Or maybe we just don’t know the practical steps we could take to make a difference for God.
Fortunately, we don’t need a time machine to discover the keys to the bold and victorious pursuit of the Great Commission that moved the first church. It’s all recorded for us in the book of Acts and it’s exactly what we’ll study over the next few weeks at Christ’s Church.
