Growing Pains

Growing Pains

The growth of the church and increasing numbers of impoverished believers require a restructuring of the community. In order to preserve unity and protect the priorities of the Word and prayer, the Twelve introduce a new group of leaders who are chosen for their godly character and are given distinct responsibilities. In this message we learn how to preserve the unity of the body and protect the primary source of power as the church grows. The outline is:

  1. Threat (vv. 1-2)
  2. Solution (vv. 3-6)
  3. Outcome (v. 7)
