Growing A Church

Growing A Church: Prayer By David K. Bernard       PRAYER   Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men (I Timothy 2:1).   Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints; and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my [ continue reading ]

 Re-Blogged From Dewayne Dulaney Introduction In the previous article of the series, we looked at the answer given by God’s Holy Spirit to the question about salvation asked in Acts chapter 2 by some Jews visiting Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost.

Re-Blogged From Dewayne Dulaney In our last post, we began to study the answer to the question of how to be saved from our sins by Jesus. In our study we looked at Acts 2:1—38.

The prophets Isaiah, and Micah had spoken of its coming “in the last days”.

In this series of lessons we will attempt to find out what the New Testament church was like, so that the honest inquirer may judge for himself [ continue reading ]
