Series Aims
  • To understand that God has chosen those who will believe in Jesus and works powerfully to bring them to faith through gospel preaching.
  • To teach that God works in all circumstances – no matter how difficult or unexpected – to create opportunities for his people to share the gospel.
  • To teach that we must continue to faithfully tell people the good news about Jesus wherever we are and whoever they are.
Series Overview
This series covers Paul’s ministry in Corinth (week 1) and Ephesus (week 2) before following his journey from Jerusalem to Rome. This journey began with his arrest in Jerusalem and trial before Felix (week 3); was followed by his trials before Festus and Agrippa (week 4); then his treacherous sea journey and shipwreck (week 5); and finished with his arrival and house arrest in Rome (week 6). These final chapters of Acts highlight two important aspects of Church growth and mission:

  1. God’s sovereignty – God is the one who chooses those who come to faith in Jesus (week 1) and he powerfully works to bring them to faith (weeks 2 and 6). He overrules the plans of those who oppose the gospel by preserving the lives of his people so that they can complete their gospel work and even the most unlikely people can hear about Jesus (weeks 3, 4, 5 and 6).

  2. Christian responsibility – as those who have come to know and love Jesus it is our responsibility to make him known to others. Paul exemplifies this in his ongoing perseverance and obedience for the sake of the gospel (weeks 1 and 2). He continued to boldly preach the truth about Jesus in every situation – when he was opposed, attacked, arrested, falsely accused and unjustly detained (weeks 3, 4, 5 and 6). And he spoke to all people regardless of their position, power or nationality (weeks 3 and 4).

Like Paul, it is our responsibility to share the gospel in all circumstances and with all people, knowing that God is working all things for our good and to bring others to know his Son, Jesus.
