Gospel of the Kingdom
Jesus' followers are empowered by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to empower his disciples as they carry the good news of his Kingdom to the nations of the world. Jesus’ followers were filled with the presence of their God, which sustained and encouraged them as they faced persecution, and even death, on their mission to spread the Jesus movement throughout the ancient world. Despite the many challenges they faced, the first international, multietchnic church at Antioch was established. This church sent missionaries throughout the ancient world to preach about Jesus the risen Messiah.

The Birth of the Church

The book of Acts is a continuation of the Gospel of Luke, following Jesus’ followers as they are given the power of God's Spirit and tasked with spreading the good news of God's Kingdom to the ancient world. This is the beginning of the international, multiethnic Church.
