The Bible is divided into the Old Testament and the New Testament, and in the Old Testament, God’s plan to get us back begins with a group of people called Israel. Starting in the book of Acts and continuing to the end of the Bible in Revelation, God establishes the church through the leadership of the disciples Jesus trained and the next generation of leaders. The first 12 chapters of Acts and then Paul takes the spot light in his mission to take the message to primarily the people outside the Jewish community, the gentiles.

The book The Acts Of The Apostles reveals the new beginnings of the church. The early church believed and preached the resurrection of Jesus and the power of His name. The prophet Isaiah had spoken of a Child to be born whose name would be called “Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” and now the church would live and die for that name.
