Brick By Brick: Antioch Established
Topic: Gospel Scripture: Acts 11:19–11:26
As the news of Christ’s life and work continued to spread beyond the walls of Jerusalem, many people from many regions began to grow in knowledge of grace and truth. One of the cities reached with the gospel was Antioch, where seeds were sown by eager disciples and where Barnabas and Saul worked together to build up and establish a church. From the work and example of these followers we learn some healthy hallmarks of a growing and thriving body of faith. The gospel preached, embodied, and established together with others sets powerful foundations for a dynamic community of God.
