Join us as we continue our current series, Transformers. This week Pastor Neli discusses the significance of the church in Antioch, highlighting the multicultural and coastal nature of the city, the dispersion of believers due to persecution, and the church’s role as a pattern for the early Christian community. Let’s embrace diversity and unity within our own spiritual families and communities. Are you hungry for the Holy Spirit gathering peoples from many nations? How does your life look like Antioch today?
So Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught a great many people. And in Antioch the disciples were first called Christians. – Acts 11:25-26 (ESV)
