The movement Jesus launched in A.D. 30 has since spanned two millennia to include billions of people.  The movement started with Jesus and has continued through ordinary people rooted in him and on mission throughout history.  We are the next generation of contributors and these are our roots. 

The Beginning

Before Jesus ascended to heaven, he promised to build something that would change the world.

Acts 1

The Work Begins

The Church is called to operate with a different mindset than any other group of people. How should God’s people view themselves and the world that God intentionally placed them in?

Acts 3-4

The Challenge Ensues

People never outgrow the need for God. What exactly does God do for us that we can’t do for ourselves?

Acts 4:43-5:42 

A Conflict Within

Despite countless uncertainties in life, conflict is guaranteed.  How we perceive it and resolve it can influence the outcomes we experience as a result of conflict.

Acts 6:1-7

The Opposition Mounts

Things in life are not always what they seem. In fact, what looks bad to us initially can actually turn out to be good for us over time. Stephen’s (a member of Jesus’ church in the first-century) life shows three ways God can turn something harmful into something helpful.  The video referenced in this sermon can be accessed at

The Movement Advances

Before leaving, Jesus launched a mission aimed at transforming the world. This mission, carried out by his people, offers a hope capable of transcending personal preference, prejudice and conflict. It is through the carrying out of this mission that the world can be changed.

An Enemy Transformed

God’s love is unlike anything the world has ever seen. The story of Saul of Tarsus proves that regardless of where we are or what we have done, we are never too far gone.

Acts 9

A Boundary Crossed

No one has been more misunderstood and misrepresented than God. In Acts 10 and 11, Peter learns something about God that changes everything.

A Captive Freed

God never promised His people an easy life. However, through challenge and conflict, He promises hope.

Acts 12

A Decision Made

Christianity is often understood as a complicated, rule oriented religion that demands compliance to strict moral codes. Is this the case? Or, is there a better way to understand what it means to follow in Jesus’ footsteps?

Acts 15

A Journey Begun

The Bible’s definition of an effective life is radically counter intuitive. Paul’s missionary journeys give us 3 keys to living an effective life.

Acts 13-14; 16-21:16

An End in Sight

Life can be incredibly challenging; filled with slander, storms, and setbacks.  Where can we find strength, and know how to respond to our circumstances?
