- What should a local church look like today?
- How should it function in today's culture?
- What is its foundation?
The premise of this book is that the activities recorded in Acts 2:42-the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, breaking of bread, and prayers-comprised the foundation on which the church was built in the 1st century, and that these foundational principles still work in any generation, culture, or country.
"And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers." -Acts 2:4Author Info:
