Acts 2:36-47; Ephesians 2:19-22
I recently asked a group of people what comes to mind when they hear the word, church. There answers were “a place to go and worship”, “a place to give your money”, “a place to fellowship”, and so on. Those answers reflect the common perception that a church is someone place where you go. Unfortunately, that definition has nothing to do with the Bible’s description of the church. When Jesus said, “I will build my church”, it had nothing to do with a building but with people. Beginning with this sermon, we will be taking a look at what the early church was and what it looked like.
