What images come to mind when you hear the word ‘church’? It’s probably a good ways off from how they understood the term in the first century.
The church at its inception was essentially a movement–a movement built around the conviction that Jesus died as the only Savior for sinners, that He rose from the dead proving He was who He said He was, and that the Holy Spirit would empower His body (the church) to take the message of Jesus to the whole world with the evidence of signs and wonders.
Our goal with this series is to learn from the 1st Century church so that we, empowered by the Holy Spirit, can faithfully execute His Great Commission–establishing His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. #HisPeople #HisMission #HisPower
