Through the years, we have had the privilege of seeing the phenomenal, miraculous work of the Holy Spirit in the growth of the Calvary Chapels. This growth started first with our own local fellowship, then spread to a national, then international level. It is our desire to pass along the spiritual principles we have learned along the way. Many of these have been learned the hard way, which are fundamental principles that God has blessed. They express God’s intention for the church and are to be found in this commentary study of the book of Acts.
In reality, Acts is an open-ended book. Chapters are still being written today all over the world, as Jesus continues touching and changing lives. Presently, the Holy Spirit is indwelling, empowering, guiding, and teaching those who have put their trust in Jesus Christ. Therefore, as we study the church in Acts, one thing becomes quite obvious—it was a church that was governed, directed, and led by the Holy Spirit. So let’s continue on in the Spirit.
