It’s Only the Beginning... (Acts 1:1-5)Gary Kirst, September 8, 2019
Part of the Acts - Thy Kingdom Come series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
What a fascinating and inspiring history is this Book of Acts in our Bibles! What makes it especially exciting is the fact that this history continues to be written — in the sense that the risen, ascended Lord continues to expand His reign in our world through His Spirit-empowered Church even today.

1The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, 2Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: 3To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: 4And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. (KJV)
