Part 2

Why The Early Church Grew

Mt 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

NKJV = Make Disciples

Matt. 28:20 “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

End of the Age

I. Members were Dedicated

Required for growth

Dedication Crisis today



2 Cor. 10:5 - submission


Set aside to a purpose

Rom. 12:1-2 “sacrifice”


To give in charge or trust

Determination to do the will

II. Purity of Life

Jas. 1:27 “unspotted from the world” ESV “unstained”

2 Pet. 2:20 “escaped the pollutions of the world”

1 Pet. 2:9-10 called out of darkness

Impure lives cannot attract

Life of Christian is different

Some members source of reproach

Impurity kills desire to serve God

“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

Rom. 8:7-8

III. Fear of God

Reverence - Terror, Dread

“No place for terror” ???

“No fear in love” 1 Jn. 4:18

“Judgment to Come” is part of the gospel - Acts 24:25

“Everlasting Punishment”

Hell is a reality

Fear of Going There

Concern about others

Acts 19:17,18 “fear fell on them all” “many believed”

Am I really concerned about the growth of the church ?

The church today can grow

Examine our own life

Why The Early Church Grew

I. Members were Dedicated

II. Purity of Life

III. Fear of God

Why The Early Church Grew

The Church can Grow Today
