FOUNDATIONS
THE BEGINNING OF THE CHURCH
Lesson 1
“On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.” Acts 1:4

1. by God

The Bible make it clear that God has always desired to create a people for himself; a people who would love him with all their hearts, and a people for whom he could prove himself to be a faithful God.
“For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. “ Deuteronomy 7:6

2. by Jesus

“Jesus says, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18 (ESV)

This indicates that the church was still in the future when he spoke. He was making a prediction concerning his future building of the church.

And there are many times when our personal perspective can get skewed – as we start to think of the church we’re in as my organization rather than Jesus church.

3. by the Spirit

“For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.” 1 Corinthians 12:13

A. The church was born on the .

B. The is the power behind every bit of growth and any effective ministry
in the church.

God , Jesus , the Spirit . The whole of God is involved in the whole of what the church is in the world.
