Ever wondered how the church got it's start or what it was like in its infancy?  One can easily find this out by studying the New Testament book of Acts.  When you read it, you find out something very extraordinary about the church.  It was started and proliferated by very ordinary people.  In the opening weeks of the life of the first church of all time (church in Jerusalem), we find this description of its leaders after they were questioned by local authorities:

When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
— Acts 4:13 (New International Version)

Not too impressive!  Yet these ordinary men and women spread Christianity in a way that resulted in the conversion of at least 6 million people in the Roman empire in a 250 year period.  What was it about these people, about their community, about their Christ, that made them so effective?  

Join us this Spring semester (starting Sunday, Jan. 28th) as we learn about a community of world changers whose impact is still being experienced, even by us.  And find out how we, also ordinary men and women, can be used in extraordinary ways by our God!
