Models for church government, guidelines for evangelism and mission work, the challenge to triumphant faith in the face of opposition and persecution—this is the book of Acts. The book of Acts is critical for our understanding of the church—its origins, mission, and purpose, both in its early days and into the present. Acts explains God's new ways of revealing himself. We see this most vividly in the Spirit's presence at Pentecost, but also in the calling of Paul, and in the spread of the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
