With each passing year, the church faces new challenges. We have discussed many of these challenges in the top-10 challenges series here on Bellator Christi.com. While there are distinctive challenges each year, the church will continue to be here until the time that Christ returns. The early New Testament church faced new issues. How did they deal with the challenges they faced? Let’s find out today as Pastor Brian G. Chilton discusses the church’s new year from Acts 11:19-30.
- The Church’s New Year Consisted of a New MEMBERSHIP (11:19-21). God was going to move the church into new areas.
- The Church’s New Year Consisted of New MINISTERS (11:22-25, 27-28). God was going to call new people to minister and serve.
- The Church’s New Year Consisted of a New MINISTRY (11:26, 29-30). God was going to call the church together for new ministries as the church is a global family.
