Acts: The Word of God to the End of the Earth

The Book of Acts explodes with God's plan to spread His Word from Jerusalem to the Ends of the Earth. Acts is the only divinely inspired history of the early church - providing incredible insights into the first three decades of the early church (~ A.D. 30-63). The Book of Acts is action packed, deep in theology, and challenges believers to continue the God-given mission of making disciples through the spreading of the gospel. Acts is a treasure! It serves as medicine for a stagnant faith. The Holy Spirit compels the church onward, using people who committed their ways to Jesus Christ to triumph through trials and to overcome great obstacles - all to the glory of God. While this book is often referred to as "The Acts of the Apostles," perhaps a more accurate title would be "The Acts of the Holy Spirit."
