ACTS

GOD in MOTION

CHURCH in ACTION

WHY STUDY THE BOOK OF ACTS

  • It biblically records the history and the powerful deeds of the Holy Spirit working through the early church.

  • It provides a detailed account of how the early church grew and expanded God's Kingdom.

  • It shows the gospel spread more than just geographically.

  • There is a transition.

WHAT IS THE APPLICATION

  • Work of the Holy Spirit through believers for evangelism and missions.

  • God can do amazing things through ordinary people like you and I.

  • Live out the Holy Spirit empowered life.

  • Acts is volume II of a two-volume work by doctor Luke, an account of what Jesus continued to do throught he Holy Spirit in the early church. 

  • The "word of God spread"/"the church grew in numbers" as summarised at major transitions in Acts. Thus traces the fulfillment of the commission of the Risen Christ in Acts 1:8, despite opposition and hardships, from a tiny corner of Palestine to reach the centre of the Roman Empire, in 30 years.
