What is Church? Part 2: Apostles Teaching

This morning we looked at one of the first descriptions of the first century church: they were devoted to the apostles’ teaching. Why was this fledgling group of fishermen, tax collectors and tent-makers along with the new believers added to their number so committed to the apostles’ teaching? To clear up confusion about the basics, to help them make wise decisions, and to slowly but surely mature them in their faith. The same is true for us. If we’re going to grow as followers of Jesus, we must be devoted to growing in the knowledge and application of the scriptures.
