First Called Christians

April 7, 2013

Jay Strother · Acts 11:19-26 · Acts 13:1-4

Jay Strother will be preaching the second sermon in our series on Paul. Here's a word to you from Jay...

I'll be preaching from Acts 11:19-26 and 13:1-4 on the church at Antioch, the place where followers of Jesus were first called Christians.

Much like Nashville, the church at Antioch was a culturally important city at the crossroads of the ancient world. It was from there that Barnabas and Paul were sent on the first mission journey to take the gospel to the ""ends of the earth.""

We have much to learn from the early church and Paul's obedience to the vision and calling Jesus placed before him. Similar to Paul, our church family is full of gifted men and women God desires to use to impact the world with the gospel.
