Acts: Jesus Builds His Church
Acts: Jesus Builds His Church
The First Christians (Acts 11:19-30)

This is the 19th sermon in our series Acts: Jesus Builds His Church.

Sermon Outline:

  1. The Church flees north, and evangelizes as it goes (11:19-21).
  2. The Church in Jerusalem investigates…and gets reinforcements (11:22-26).
  3. The church in Antioch cares for the church in Jerusalem (11:27-30).

Discussion Questions:

  • If the world were to give our church (or the American church in general) a nickname based off of our behavior, what would it be? 
  • If you look at the traits of the church in Antioch (Bold in evangelism, gracious with encouragement, humble in leadership, generous with resources), which would you most like to grow in?
