You have just read a series of sound bites taken from a detailed history book about the first Christians. It was written by a medical doctor, Dr. Luke, who personally knew many of the first followers of Christ. It is known as the Book of Acts. It shows how normal Christians act.
I want to act like an Acts Christian, don’t you! I meet regularly with a group of people who want to see Acts acted out in the 21st Century. If that is your desire, come and see our support group style meetings as we seek to recover the Acts lifestyle.
We meet on Sundays at 10:45 am. and Thursdays at 6:30 pm. at 225 Berry St., Nashville, TN, 37207 (corner of Berry & Meridian Streets).
