Acts 8 documents Philip’s time in Samaria with the first cross-cultural evangelism. The establishment of believers in Samaria marked an unprecedented event in Church History. Therefore, the Apostles laid down a pattern for how to structure the local church, while focusing on God's Word. Alistair Begg explains that God is working today, as He was in Samaria, to fulfill His promise of revealing Himself to all nations in every generation.
1And Saul approved of his execution.
And there arose on that day a great persecution against the church in Jerusalem, and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.
