Series: Christian Mission in a Pagan World
April 19, 2021 | The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Bailes
"The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church." In Acts 6-7, we meet an exemplary of faith, Saint Stephen, the very first Christian martyr, who embodies the call to bear witness to Jesus by imitating His service, His suffering, and His love.
The book of Acts tells the story of the birth and expansion of the Church in a pagan world, bearing witness to the irresistible power of the Holy Spirit.
