Rincon First Christian Church

Acts 1:1-10

Acts: Church on a Mission

 

Acts 1:1-8

 

ekklesia: literally means an assembly  or gathering

 

ek: out of kaleo: called out

 

The church at its inception was, essentially, a movement built around around conviction.

 

Our English word “church” comes not from the Greek ekklesia but from the German word kirche, which meant “a sacred place where you gather for religious purposes.”

 

The danger of the church in every age is to cease being a movement.

 

The Question for the weekend…

 

Are we, as a church, just doing ministry, running an institution- or are we part of a movement?

For you: is the church a place you attend, or is it a movement you are personally part of?

 

Acts 1:6-8

 

Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”

He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

 

The Message Captured their Hearts and Minds. Has it captured yours?
