Acts: The Acts of the Apostles

This sermon series will take us right through the book of Acts from beginning to end. If you have never read Acts straight through you will gain a new understanding of the vast sweep of this story. We will watch as the Holy Spirit takes 120 initial believers and expands the church into the then known Greco-Roman world. We'll see how the early disciples dedicated their lives to the spread of the gospel and how they faced and overcame the challenges of a world that was hostile to the early church. Our hope is that you will find this story exciting, inspiring, and probably convicting as you come to appreciate the sacrifices those early Christians made for their faith.
