How Churches are Strengthened
The means that God uses to grow his church is simply this: his word! It is a profound truth that we see in this passage here even though there are some peculiar circumstances. The truth of the matter is that churches are strengthened by the preaching and teaching of the word of God. Listen in as Dwayne shows us from this text!
Jesus has risen from the dead and has ascended to the Father. The gospel has expanded to places like Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, just as Jesus told his disciples (Acts 1:8). Even the Gentiles are coming to faith in Christ (Acts 11:18). Now in chapters 13-28 we will see that the gospel is continuing to spread and as a result churches are growing. What is the main component? The Word of God! Follow us along in this series as we learn how key the Scriptures are to maturing local churches!
