Explore the Bible – Acts 1-12

(The story of the early church)

Bible study and exploration – Summer 2024  (13 weeks)

 Notes:  Unlike works of fiction, the book of Acts, offers a factual, historical account. This quarter we’re examining Acts 1–12. These chapters chronicle the beginnings of the church and the incredible growth that resulted. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, these early believers took the gospel to new lands and new people groups. God worked through His people to accomplish His purpose in His timing. Just as He did long ago, God continues to work in and through His people today. When we allow God to use us, we get a front-row seat to watch His kingdom grow.

*Evangelistic Emphasis

 As His church, we are charged with the same task the early believers received: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). Believers are equipped and empowered to share the gospel message.
