There were no #needy #believers in the early #church

All the believers were agreed in heart and mind. They didn't claim that anything they had was their own. They shared everything they owned. [33] With great power the apostles continued their teaching. They gave witness that the Lord Jesus had risen from the dead. And they were greatly blessed by God. [34] There were no needy persons among them. From time to time, those who owned land or houses sold them. They brought the money from the sales. [35] They put it down at the apostles' feet. It was then given out to anyone who needed it. Acts 4:32-35 NIrV

The Gospel


Have you heard Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him from the dead? Did you know God saves you from hell and gives you eternal life through faith in this finished work alone, not your merits (Jn. 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:1-3; Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Thess. 1:8-9)? This is so man cannot boast, and God alone gets the glory (Eph. 2:8-9).

About


The grand purpose of creation is to bring glory and pleasure to God in Christ (Eph. 1:1-10; Rev. 4:11). The gospel of Christ's death and resurrection for our sins, achieves this goal by magnifying God's grace and mercy towards undeserving sinners. The purpose of faithguard, is to glorify God, by defending and confirming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
