Change. Sometimes it’s good. Sometimes it’s bad. Unfortunately, the bad kind of change is often easier. It follows the path of our natural instincts. Good change, however, forces us to rise above our own desires.

It is the story of good change that is recorded in the book of Acts. In response to the spiritual deterioration of Israel, God gave birth to a new entity called the church. Its purpose: to bring people of all nations to a knowledge of God through Christ. Its challenge: to grow from infancy to maturity.

It is our prayer that this booklet written by Herb Vander Lugt will lead you to a new knowledge of this God who reveals Himself through the early history of His church in the book of Acts.
