What would it take for your church to impact its community in the same way the first-century church touched the lives of many of the residents of Jerusalem, Judea, and Galilee? Discover how your church can become a conduit through which God leads people from spiritual darkness to become followers of Jesus Christ. Follow in the footsteps of the early adherents of Jesus and learn how that like them your church can greatly influence your community through the power and courage given by the Holy Spirit. Build upon the strong foundation established by Jesus and let Passionately Purposeful become a guidebook to assist in equipping your church to experience success in her assignment in a contemporary context through: Boldly proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ: Positively influencing those in need of Jesus through a transformed lifestyle: Making confident, bold praying a major part of the daily life of your church: and Building a joyful and genuine sense of expectancy in your church by becoming a partner in evangelistic church planting. Our Lord revealed His mission to early followers at Caesarea Philippi, and the foundational truths of the early church remain just as relevant today. He foretold that the church built on these same truths would be victorious against the very gates of hell in any generation. Rediscover how these Passionately Purposeful early Christians were used by the Lord to turn their world upside down for Jesus Christ! He still blesses those who follow the simple basic functions that He supremely favored in that first-century church!
