The Early Church: The Church In The First Century

The Early Church: The Church In The First Century

The early church in Acts, or the church of the first century, had three calling cards: doctrine, fellowship, and prayer. In Acts 2, we see the early church's history recorded. Specifically, we see that the church grew significantly on the basis of its theology (doctrine), its community (fellowship) and the degree to which it prayed for God's leading.


"And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles." Acts 2:40-43 KJV



The Book of Acts was written by the Apostle Luke, who was a historian. Early church fathers based their understanding of the church on Luke's writings, as well as the writings of the Apostle Paul. Join us for tonight's Bible Study as we consider Acts 2 together.
