Over 2,000 years ago Jesus gathered with his small band of disciples and said, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” And in that moment the church, the movement of Jesus, was born.
The book of Acts is the story of how the Holy Spirit used a small group of men and women to turn the powerful empire on its head, and several centuries later Christianity "became the dominant religious force in the western world." But how? What happened since then? And how do we capture that same passion and zeal in our city and time?
That's the message of the book of Acts and the theme of our series Lumens.
