Resources & Tools
Everyone is on a mission. A mission to grow, succeed, or fulfill a dream. But the church has a greater mission – a kingdom mission. A mission empowered by the Holy Spirit to take the gospel to the ends of the Earth. And you are a part of it, because you are the church. The church is not a place we go, it’s each one of us joining in the work of Jesus, started over 2000 years ago. In this two-part series on the book of Acts, we’ll see how Jesus’ first disciples became a community on mission together to change the world, and how we can continue to carry out that mission today. The church is on a mission and the church is you. Are you in?
