God’s redemptive work reached its climactic point with the death and resurrection of Jesus. The story did not end there. Jesus sent His disciples into all of the world with the gospel. The book of Acts details the first decades of this mission, following Peter and Paul as they share the gospel in many nations.

It teaches us how the gospel comes into and changes our lives. The book of Acts also describes God’s design for the church. It shows how believers are interact with the each and the world around us!
