Acts: Ordinary People and an Extraordinary God

The Book of Acts is the story of the growth and multiplication of the early church from Jerusalem to Rome. We re-visit this great book to re-engage with our vision for the church's role to be both a home for God's people and a mission to the world.

Twenty years ago, NCCC began with a study of the Book of Acts, the story of the growth and multiplication of the early church from Jerusalem to Rome.  In our 21st year, we re-visit this great book to re-engage with our vision for the church's role to be both a home for God's people and a mission to the world.  Acts vividly captures the spectacular growth of the church from the preaching and evangelistic efforts of Peter and Paul.  It also portrays the extraordinary challenges that confronted the fledgling church, from persecution on the outside, to deception and division on the inside.  In all, it focuses on the extraordinary power of God at work in ordinary people to do extraordinary things.  We hope this study will be the vehicle for God to do an extraordinary new work in our midst in the weeks ahead, as this church of "ordinaries" seeks to hear and apply the word to life.
