Making Disciples of All Nations

Acts of the Apostles (Page 4)

A Sermon Series in the Book of Acts

The Church Begins

Acts 2:42-47 As the church era begins, we see in this passage that a relationship with Jesus causes us to be separated from the world and to have compassion for those around us.  This new lifestyle is so attractive that it draws those who have no hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The God Who Acts

Acts 1:12 – 2:13 Acts is the story of the ministry of Jesus from heaven, through the Holy Spirit, by the apostles.  In this message we see God beginning to act as He chooses Matthias to replace Judas and then sends the Holy Spirit to indwell all believers.  Nothing will ever be the same after this day.

Why Are You Gazing?

Acts 1:6-11 At Jesus ascension he gives the disciples a command… it is their mission, and the mission of the church today.  Be my witnesses.  Yet, the disciples find themselves gazing into heaven wondering when he will return.

The Holy Spirit

Acts 1:1-5 The Book of Acts is about he ministry of Jesus Christ from heaven, through the Holy Spirit, by the apostles.  In this passage Luke tells us that the disciples waited in Jerusalem for the baptism of the Holy Spirit.  Understanding the why this is so important is central to living a Spirit guided life.

Prologue To Acts – Blessed Obedience

Deuteronomy 28:1-2 Obedience is essential to Christian life.  Before we begin the study of Acts it is essential for the church to understand our need for renewal.  God’s promises of blessing to the believer are all conditioned on one requirement… that we obey Him.  “If…. then” is the pattern for all of God’s promises to us, throughout the Old and New Testament.

Prologue to Acts – God’s Ambassadors

2 Corinthians 5:17-21 As we prepare to launch into a study of the book of Acts, it is critically important that we understand the ministry that God has entrusted to us as his reconciled children.  This message looks at an amazing passage from 2 Corinthians 5 that will lay the foundation for our study of Acts.
