  • A Great Church Is A Joyously Worshiping Church

    Contributed on Apr 6, 2016

    A Tour through Acts ~ part 8 A Great Church is a Joyously Worshiping Church Acts 2:46-47a Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.

    Contributed on Feb 22, 2016

    Most words are valuable because they communicate more than facts. They communicate feelings.

    A Tour Through Acts ~ part 5 An Awe-Filled Church Acts 2:43 Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. (Acts 2:43 NIV) And everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. (Acts 2:43 more
