Acts 1: 4-11

Jesus Gives the “Great Mission”

He Promises

The Holy Spirit will come to aid in it.

Returns to Heaven


What Does A

Gospel-Centered

Church

Look Like?


Distinctive #1:

Preaching and Teaching of

the Gospel is

THE Priority.

We faithfully tell The Story of Jesus at all times.


Distinctive #2:

The Emphasis

of our Message

is More on What God Has Done Than on What

We Are To Do.


All of

our secondary teachings

flow out from The Gospel.

They don’t eclipse it.


Distinctive #3:

Church Members Demonstrate

the Beauty of

The Gospel

in the Community.

“God’s Demonstration Community”


Many of

these “Signs”

were just the “church being

the church,” displaying

God’s Kingdom

in tangible ways.

* Acts 2: 42-47


What “Signs”Helped Demonstrate The Beauty

of The Gospel

in the

Early Church?


“Sign” #1:

Love & Unity

in the Church


“Sign” #2:

Generosity

with Money

and Possessions


“Sign” #3:

Joy in the Midst of Difficulty

and Persecution


“Sign” #4:

Miraculous Answers

to Prayer


These “Signs” Are Meant

to Accentuate The Gospel,

NOT to Replace its Message.


Acts 8: 4-8

Philip’s Preaching of Gospel & Signs

Acts 9: 36-42

“Tragic” Death

and Raising

of Tabitha


If Our Church “Died” Tomorrow and Closed

Its Doors,

Would Our Community Mourn

That Loss?
