Acts 9:31  (ID: 3061)

Church leaders often wonder how they can attract more people to attend their churches. Should they change the music? Address more contemporary issues? Offer free coffee and donuts? By examining the early church, Alistair Begg points us to an answer. Through keeping the Word of God at the forefront and by walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, perhaps we too will someday say, along with Acts 9:31, that our churches “multiplied.”


31So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied.
