ORDINARY CHURCH – Extraordinary Community

Play Audio

The early church had a strange way of doing evangelism, yes they went out, and yes they spoke the Word, but after that they didn’t do the things we do. They didn’t hold day camps for their cities, they didn’t have soup kitchens for the poor outside the church, and they didn’t have clothing banks for anyone to use.

What they did was – all of the above for all of the people who were IN the church.  They didn’t try to fix the world, rather, through the power of the Holy Spirit they created a new one – the Kingdom of God on earth, and that Kingdom, that Church, was very, very attractive.

We will examine the community that started it all, the early church, and we will see that it was an extraordinary community indeed.  A community that showed God’s love.  A community that changed the world.
