When you pray for the best, but the worst happens.
Acts 8:1-8
 
The point: We can hope. We can pray. But, there are times that God allows the worst case scenario to play out. When He does, He is glorified and the Kingdom is advanced.

    Stephen: A deacon to remember
    Acts 6:8-15

    I. He was empowered like Jesus (v.8).
    II. He spoke with unanswerable wisdom like Jesus (vs. 9-10).

    Journey of Servanthood
    Acts 6:1-7
     
    The Point: As the Gospel spread to different cultures, those individual cultures became one family. When conflict rises in family, the family should be proactive in resolving it biblically.
     
    I. The struggle (v.1).
    II. The solution (vs. 2-6).
    III. The statement (v.7).

    How far would you go?
    Acts 5:17-42
     
    The Point: Many times our greatest witness to a lost world comes not from the words that come from our mouths. It comes, instead, from our response to adversity.
     
    I. The Apostles met adversity (vs 17-26).
    II. The Apostles responded with grace (vs. 27-32).

    Ordinary Hands / Extraordinary Savior
    Acts 5:12-16
     
    The Point: Our culture has built up a mentality that you must have a celebrity's limelight to make a difference. Jesus doesn't want your fame. He simply wants your obedience.
     
    I. Miracles Were Performed By The Hands of Men, Empowered Through The Heart of God. (vs. 12-13)
     
    II. Miracles Focused Attention Away From The Law And Onto Grace. (vs. 14-16)

    The Field, and the Phonies
     
    There were problems with our recording and we only have the last 15 minutes of the sermon.
     
    Acts 5:1-11
     
    The Point: Hypocrisy within the church causes us to play a role that we're further along in the maturation process than we actually are. It kills the church from within.
     
    I. Among the people of God there will always be hypocrites.
    II. God has placed us in a fallen world so we can reflect him in the world.

    When standing up drives you to your knees
    We had technical issues with the recording. We have the second part of the sermon and we'll try to recover the first part and add it to our website as soon as possible.
    Acts 4:23-31
     
    The Point: In the face of immense persecution, the Church's response was to pray. The prayer they prayed wasn't for deliverance from discomfort. It was for boldness of witness.
     
    I. The prayer was reflective of its recipient.
    II. The prayer was rooted in the Gospel.
    III. The prayer renounced comfort over mission.

    Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus, Part 1
     
    Acts 4: 1 - 22
     
    The Point: Every Christian must make a careful, daily examination of his or her faith. If we cannot find even the slightest hint of persecution, our faith in Jesus may simply be too closeted.
     
    I. The establishment's interruption (vs. 1 - 4)
    II. The Apostle's Response (vs. 5 - 12)
         A. Boldness because of resurrection.
         B. Boldness because of your neighbor.
         C. Boldness because the Gospel is exclusive.

    Put yourself out there.
    Acts 3:11-26
     
    The Point: You're never going to play a part of advancing the Kingdom of God unless you live each day with a certain intentionality about the Gospel.
     
    I. Take advantage of the God-ordained moments to show people the Gospel.
    II. Use God-ordained moments to call unbelievers to repentance.
