Benevolent Believers

Something weird happened in the church after Pentecost. The Holy Spirit filled believers to share all things in common. Some were even selling their possessions and giving the proceeds to those in need. What expressions are in this story for TGP?

Community Expansion

In our Acts study we have already seen evidence that the community of believers is having an impact on the watching world. Many have put thier faith in Jesus, but what does it look like to be witnesses to individuals as we live in community? How does it happen on the personal level? Today we look at principles that come from Peter and John's encounter with a crippled man.

Laying Hold of Community

In Acts 3-4 there are two different responses to the healing of a man born crippled. Both lay hold of the new community of believers, but in different ways and with different agendas.


Following the release of Peter and John from prison, the community had a reason to celebrate. The things that they realized and their response in prayer teaches us something about walking in community.
