Acts

The Book of Acts stands unique in the New Testament. While other books mention Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection, Acts carries the story into the lives of Jesus’ earliest followers. Citylight will journey through this book as desire to become a family who prioritizes evangelism and mission. It is our hope and prayer that this book will empower and inspire us through the Holy Spirit to take the message of Jesus and the Kingdom forward into our world for God’s glory.

By reflecting on this summary of church life from the very beginning of the Christian movement, we learn to live as Christ's Kingdom Community (the Church). This kingdom community is a Word-centered, generous, relational, worshiping, and expanding community of people devoted to Christ and His work in the world
