SUNDAY SERMON: Church on Fire

Dr. Alan Trafford has been pastor of Covenant Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Lake Jackson for 22 years.

What should the church be like? Is there any guidance to be had? What are the marks of a Spirit-filled church? Let’s look at a model of the early church in Acts 2:42-47. What do we see?

First, the church must be gathered. Those early Christians came together as they were called by God; they didn’t try to exist in isolation. They learned to depend upon one another, and upon God. They gathered together; so must we. We respond to the Gospel as individuals, but we do not remain alone. We become part of something bigger than ourselves. This is the church.
