The purpose for Deacons is to guard the unity of the church. In the Book of Acts, Satan attacks the church more

    based on 5 ratings

    Acts 6 tells us that after the church met the needs of its widows, the "disciples multiplied greatly". What caused this dramatic explosion of growth and what can we learn from that?
