Series: The Making Of A Movement
Acts 1:4, Acts 1:8
Today I am continuing a New Series: The Making Of A Movement!. You see we are not a religious people following a religious system. Rather we are Followers of Jesus And Fulfilling His Mission.
You see Jesus did not come to establish another Religious system but Jesus came to establish a movement of People who understood that they were part of something that is bigger than just themselves.
