Acts 1:1-11 Intro to the Book of Acts and the Importance of the Spirit in the Mission

A witness must know, not merely by hear-say, whereof he speaks. Those who are to be witnesses for Christ must know Christ.

Aren’t You Glad?

C.S. Lewis wrote these well-known words: “ It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you can talk to may one day be a creature which, if you saw it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or […]
