Why are there so many odd miracles that take place n Acts? In Acts 19 there are some notable "extraordinary" miracles that happen through the hands of the Apostle Paul. In this sermon we wrestle with how these miracles should increase your confidence in the Lord and His Word.

When a person believes in Jesus Christ they receive the Holy Spirit (e.g. Gal. 3:14; Eph. 1:13)? How do you know that you have the Holy Spirit? What does the Holy Spirit do in your life? In Sunday's sermon we look at various passages in the New Testament and try to answer these questions.

How do you know that you have received the Holy Spirit? Is speaking in tongues the sign of the Holy Spirit's presence? In this weeks sermon we look at the three instances of speaking in tongues in the book of Acts.

The Lord appears to Paul one night in a vision and encourages him while he is at Corinth. He tells Paul not to be afraid but to keep on speaking. These words are not unique to Paul. Throughout the Bible the Lord encourages his people by telling them not to fear. If you face fear this passage will be helpful to you.
Acts 18:1-17 | Do not be afraid! | Pastor Mike Hyatt | 34:27
Paul is in Athens and is speaking to people who have little to no understanding of the Bible, God, sin or Jesus. So what does he do? He begins with God and creation and teaches them the storyline of the Bible. By doing this Paul builds a framework for the people to understand the gospel. In other words, Paul engages in worldview evangelism and we can learn a lot from his example.
