Sermon Series Introduction

Christ’s Reign and the Church’s Birth: A Study of Acts 1:1 – 8:3


with Downloadable Resources and Personal Study Recommendations


Living around a transient community like Clemson, we must continually remind ourselves of why our church exists. In Acts, we discover the church’s identity and purpose as formed by the gospel of our risen and reigning Lord Jesus Christ.


Join us in Part 1 of our study of the book of Acts as we delve into Acts 1:1 to 8:3, witnessing the birth and growth of the early church. This series will serve as a compass, guiding us to re-orient ourselves around our mission rooted in the Bible.


Throughout our study, we will witness the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit, who emboldened the early disciples to fearlessly live on mission despite adversity and suffering. We can take heart, knowing that the same Spirit empowers us today to navigate the challenges we face in our cultural landscape.


As we are reminded of the Lordship of Christ, we need not fear in the face of hostility or trouble. Our faith will be renewed, knowing that Jesus’s victory and present reign assure us of His promise to build His church, even amidst of a changing world.


Let’s draw inspiration from the early church’s unity, struggles, and genuine community as we strive to faithfully fulfill Christ’s mission in our generation.  


Get ready to be transformed by the timeless truths found in “Christ’s Reign and the Church’s Birth.” 


Together, let’s eagerly anticipate this study through the birth of the church, emboldened by Jesus’s victory and encouraged by the work of the Holy Spirit.


Join us Sunday mornings at 9:00 or 11:00 AM in the Fall of 2023 for our series, “Christ’s Reign and the Church’s Birth: A Study of Acts 1:1-8:3.”
