A Continuing Story: An Exposition of Acts

A Continuing Story: An Exposition of Acts is a series preached at Grace Baptist Church during our Sunday Morning Service beginning in the Spring of 2019.  Acts is Part 2 of a two volume work that Luke wrote (the other volume is the Gospel that bears his name) about the Works and Words of the risen and ascended Christ, through his people, by the power of the Holy Spirit.  

This story was well-researched, and written down, and is therefore preached, so that we would "have certainty concerning the things that we have been taught" about the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. We hope that you will join us as we study this great book.
