Not everyone who professes to be a Christian is truly a follower of Jesus Christ, regardless of the Christian language they use or the Christian activities in which they participate. These “almost Christians” always try their best, struggling to do for themselves what God, in His grace, has already accomplished. In this study of Acts 19:1-10, Alistair Begg discusses the identifying marks of genuine conversion and the evidence of the Spirit’s work in the Christian experience.

Each year in early May, pastors from across the country and around the world come to Parkside to express their partnership in the gospel and to renew their commitment to the basics of prayer and the Word of God - those activities the Apostles themselves found indispensable and which we so easily evade. We urge you to join us this year as we gather with friends and fellow workers to affirm and renew an unyielding commitment which is the very essence of our calling as pastors: "we will devote ourselves to prayer and the ministry of the Word" (Acts 6:4). ...

Luke’s gospel is the longest book in the New Testament. When you consider it along with the other book that he wrote, namely the Acts of the Apostles, Luke is responsible for over a quarter of New Testament material. Luke was one of Paul’s most significant companions and several things about him help us understand why God laid his hand upon this man. He was a Gentile, the only Gentile writer in the whole of the New Testament. He was also a doctor and an educated man. He was an historian. In fact, he was more of a historian than ...

It’s one of the most dramatic spiritual conversions in all of the Bible—if not in human history—when Saul, the antagonistic Jew who had shunned, mocked and chided those who followed Jesus turned his life over to Christ. Alistair Begg recounts that remarkable event when we look at Acts 9 together.

In the study of Acts 19:8-20, Alistair Begg leads us through Paul’s return visit to Ephesus, where he boldly proclaimed the Gospel and argued persuasively regarding the Kingdom of God. From Paul’s example, we learn the importance of being God-centered and God-glorifying when witnessing to others regarding the Good News of salvation and the power of the cross of Christ.

Often, when a church suffers unresolved problems, the resulting chaos can be traced back to defective leadership. In this study of Acts 20:17-24, Alistair Begg uses the Apostle Paul’s life to illustrate three essential factors of effective biblical leadership: transparency, integrity, and urgency. Nonetheless, a ministry that is open, consistent, Gospel-centered, and Spirit-led will still face different challenges that require steadfast faith and perseverance.

While preaching the Gospel in Ephesus, Paul spoke persuasively about the fact that “man-made gods are no gods at all,” resulting in lost revenue for local craftsmen who sold silver shrines of the goddess Artemis. A riot ensued, but Alistair Begg points out that Paul followed the pattern that Jesus Christ modeled by reaching out to the lost and suffering with loving tenderness and a sincere invitation to be transformed.
