Breakthrough Living – Acts
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Juda and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” — Acts 1:8 (ESV)
We continue our spiritual journey through the New Testament in the chronological order in which the books were written. Since we completed Paul’s letters last year, we will now study Acts, Luke’s history of the early church. The book of Acts focuses on the power of the Holy Spirit as it empowered and guided the ministries of Peter, Paul, and others to expand the church beyond Jerusalem to the Gentiles. Despite resistance and persecution, these early apostles and saints persevered in living and sharing their faith. Their examples strengthen and encourage us today as we respond to God’s call on us to faithfully live for His Kingdom in a culture that is becoming increasingly hostile to the faith.
These interactive, discussion-oriented teachings are led by class members who are mature in the faith, who love God’s Word, and who align their daily walk with their heavenly calling.
