Christ: Humanity’s Only Hope | Acts 1:1-3

In this new series we will explore together the continuing story of God’s expanding kingdom under the saving rule of Jesus Christ. Luke’s book of Acts picks up where his gospel left off. It provides details of how the church of Christ was born, how it grew, and how it overcame fierce opposition. It is the account of how the followers of Jesus “turned the world upside down” (17:6) by taking the good news of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ to “the end of the earth” (1:8). This first message introduces the continuing word and works of the risen Lord, through His church, empowered by the Holy Spirit. The outline is:

  1. Jesus continues His work

    1. Persuaded (v2b)
    2. Empowered (v2b)
