Overview

The book of Acts is about the history of the early church. For the first seven chapters, we only see the gospel in Jerusalem and Judea, but because of the execution of Stephen and then the persecution that ensued, the great body of Christians in Jerusalem were scattered. As they went out the church became a church on mission.

The word mission today is almost everywhere. Everybody has a mission statement. People create personal missions of their own. The word mission comes from the Latin word that means to be sent. Mission characterized the earliest church. We see there were basically four marks to this mission: it was an organic mission, an urban mission, an embodied mission, and a gospel mission.
