We have learned that God has a plan to reveal His manifold wisdom to the rulers and authorities in Heavenly places. God’s purpose and plan is to be accomplished through His Church by preaching the pure gospel and revealing the mystery of God’s wisdom. As this marvelous plan is fulfilled through His church, God will be glorified!
Now we embark on a journey like no other. We will take a close look at Luke’s historical account in Acts that focuses on the establishment and growth of the early church. The church was not only born, but in its birth God gave it a powerful force that literally turned their world upside down in ways nobody would have imagined or thought possible. Truly this will be an unforgettable journey, so hold on as we join the movement of the Holy Spirit through Acts.
In the following blogs, we will go through each chapter of the Book of Acts and discern God’s timeless and supra-cultural key principles necessary for establishing strong, biblical churches. It is important to recognize those principles that stay consistent throughout the book of Acts. You will compare and contrast the early church with today’s church so you can discover what strengths and weaknesses are in today’s church. In doing this, you will be able to see where changes need to be made and how to bring today’s church more in line with the Scriptures. Then you will be equipped to start a new work or to renew an existing work.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I will not cover every principle or compare and contrast the early church with today’s church. In order for you to gain from this series, it will be important to download a copy of the manual, God’s Plan for His Church, from the “Training Resources” page on this website or click on the link below. Then you can note for yourself changes that need to be made and how to make them.
