We Are Witnesses

Listen online or download Sunday messages, and here!

Our message from April 7: Acts 5.27-32, with our own witness stories included (check out the audio)!

Witness = Greek legal term, martus = root for "martyr"
"Do you solemnly swear that you will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?"

Not about the guilt question: Who killed Jesus
people have been killed over this – Jews, Roman Catholics

Not about the power question: Jesus told me to
About the gift of repentance and forgiveness (not guilt!)
About witness to cross and resurrection (not power!)

No proof of resurrection, only empty tomb and the church

Peter’s transformation
impulsive - walk on water
die for you
deny 3x

Our stories!
