Acts 1:12-26. Have you ever been betrayed by someone you considered a friend? It happens in our personal lives, but it also happens in the local church. We all have had friends at church who seemingly believed as we do, but ended up abandoning the faith. Historically, we call these individuals “apostates.” What are we to do about these apostates? Is there hope for reconciliation?
Acts 1:9-11. While many Christians love Christmas and Easter due to a focus on the incarnation or resurrection, many forget the crowning moment of Jesus’ ministry - His Ascension. In this sermon we tackle three big questions: 1. What is the Ascension? 2. How did the Ascension affect the Apostles? 3. Why does the Ascension matter to us?
Acts 1:6-8. The time has come for Jesus to ascend to His Heavenly throne and leave His Apostles on earth. The Apostles ask one last pressing question on their hearts. Jesus’ answer to their question describes the timing, message, and scope of His Kingdom.
