Acts 1-2 series, Episode 5: meeting with and growing God's people

Luke's description of the first Christian church in Jerusalem is amazing! If your church isn't already like this, would you like it to be?

Remember that the Church is made up of ordinary people, so wanting our church to look like the early church in Acts means recognising that we should be like this. No matter what your church is like, where it meets or how it is organised, the church being the church is how God grows his kingdom.

When we gather together for teaching, prayer, community and remembering Jesus's death and resurrection, God's promise is that he will grow his church.

The rest of Acts tells the story about how the good news about Jesus spread across the whole world. But the story begins in Acts 1-2 with Jesus' instruction: continue my work (Acts 1:8). For last 2,000 years, this is exactly what his people have been doing. How will you see his work continues?
