Journey through the biblical stories of the early Christian movement, and see what kind of wild adventures await those who truly believe Jesus.
Throughout the book of Acts, believing Jesus and what he said is the core value that marked every believer in the first church. Because they believed Jesus, the early Christians were willing to risk everything--their comfort, their homes, even their lives.
In this eight-session video Bible study (streaming included), Lisa Harper launches into the book of Acts to discover how Jesus' command to spread the gospel changed the lives of those who believed and shaped the culture that surrounded the growing church. At the end of this journey together, not only will you have studied this wild, adventurous, risk-taking book of the Bible; but you'll see how God supernaturally orchestrated the events in Scripture to bring about the message of salvation that the early believers preached.
Today, we are faced with the same risks. Will we truly believe the words of Jesus and allow them to transform every part of our lives?
