* April through June of 2022 we considered "The Marks of a Healthy Church." Stemming from that series, we studied the book of Ephesians and then began this current study of the book of Acts. In that series, we consider what I refer to as: The Armada of the Church - the four "ships" of the church: Worship, Discipleship, Fellowship, and Stewardship.
* As the church was established and the message of the gospel began to spread, these four areas have been continually seen in the interactions of the church.
* Over the past couple of weeks, we have seen the conversion of Saul of Tarsus - who was formerly the persecutor of the church - and the conversion of Cornelius the Centurion. God was beginning His work of sending the Gospel to the end of the earth.
* Today, we see that message spread to Antioch - where this fledgling church highlights the marks of a vibrant church.
