Community In God’s Image

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.–Acts 2:42-47 (NIV)

Why do we get stirred and desire to see the community like we read about in Acts 2?

The Life-Giving Church – the people of God marked by the life, love, joy, and mission of Jesus…like the church we read about in the book of Acts.

The Main Thing: Our hearts sing when we experience Acts 2 community because we are made in the image of a loving God of community.

Identity and Action…
