In four years, the churches were multiplying and growing throughout all Judea, Samaria, and Galilee (Acts 9:31). Within nineteen years they ‘turned the world upside down’ (Acts 17:6). Within just twenty years His followers had taken this message to every major city of the Roman Empire as well as Africa and India. And within thirty years, the gospel was bearing fruit and growing (Colossians 1:6).
By A.D. 300, Christians made up around 10 percent of the population throughout the Roman Empire – five to nine million followers of Jesus. Today, His followers number more than 2 billion around the world. And all of this from a man whose work spanned just three years in Israel, and who never wrote a book or had a TV and radio program.
But it seems that somewhere along the way the church has drifted off course from Jesus’ intended model. In The Connected Church we take a closer look at Acts 2:37-47 to see how the early church grew. We apply the Connected principles and look at the position of your church, the forgotten Jesus Model, and consider whether your church is driven by a program or a process.
In The Connected Church we continue to work on the foundation of The Connected Life, taking a closer look at Acts 2 and the Commandments of Jesus, as we apply the truths that we have learned.
