In chapter four we will see how Peter and John faced persecution, spoke the word of God with boldness, and with the rest of the church, was filled once again with the power of the Holy Spirit to further preach the Word with boldness in the face of persecution.
In chapter 3 we will be looking at how Peter and John had become missionaries in Jerusalem.

In our first study in the Book of Acts, we talk about the background of the Book of Acts. We discussed the author, the purpose, and the importance of this historical book. We see how this book bridges the gap between the Gospels and the rest of the New Testament. We see how the Book of Acts is about the early church and more importantly, the Acts of Holy Spirit. As we study the Book of Acts, we will be studying how the early church got started and the fundamentals of this Holy Spirit Driven church, so that we can obtain an understanding of what to look for in a church, how to be the church, and the power of the Holy Spirit at work in our lives, as well as in the church today.
