The Birth of the Church

June 2, 2019 Max Frazier Series: The Thread of Redemption

Acts 2 records the “grand opening” of the Church. It is the celebration of a new organism known as the Body of Christ. This “grand opening” occurred on the Day of Pentecost, the first of the harvest festivals celebrated by the people of Israel. This Day would mark the first in the harvest of souls for the Kingdom of God that would continue until this present day. The Day began with a series of miraculous events, followed by a powerful message preached by none other than Peter himself, the former denier of Jesus. And the Day concluded with a tremendous response with over 3,000 people coming to know Jesus. And what did Peter share? He shared very simply what he had seen and what he knew. That is all God asks of us.
