How We Come into The Church of Jesus Christ
As we attempt to sweep through the Bible, and have a quick overview of the Word of God, we come now to the book of ACTS. Acts is written by Luke - this is his second volume.
It begins after the resurrection of Jesus Christ - deals with the details of the Ascension - a much forgotten aspect of the life and ministry of Jesus.
We are dealing with around the first 30 years of the Church of Jesus Christ.
We then go on to read about that mighty day of Pentecost - when the Church of Jesus Christ was birthed - launched - in the Temple in Jerusalem - with thousands present - and 120 disciples of Jesus baptised in the Holy Spirit - anointed – filled – and overflowing.
And they ALL spoke in tongues - they ALL praised God in languages they had never learned. Those who were observing thought they were drunk - and Peter explained, basing his explanation on the Scriptures - as to what God had done.
Here we are reading of how we come into the Church of Jesus Christ and how we are to behave once we come into the Church of Jesus Christ.
Luke was doctor - a scientist - a man used to being careful in observation and keeping records. He has examined the life of Jesus - now he is examining the life of the Church, and in these first 11 or 12 Chapters we have most of the basics of the Christian life.
When speaking in Uganda and Kenya at 3-day Seminars for Pastors and Leaders, I have taken these men through the first 15 Chapters of the book of ACTS.
On the Day of Pentecost, when Peter explains what has been happening, people want to do something - Acts Chapter 2 verses 37f. – and Peter is simple straightforward and clear - repent - be baptised – receive the Holy Spirit.
Then we read of the importance of teaching - and these four basic areas of life in the fellowship of the Church of Jesus Christ.
Peter and John meet that cripple man - and he is healed - and Peter and John are imprisoned. Persecution has begun - within the first few days.
But there a boldness and a courage displayed by these apostles - and a fellowship which is so strong and reliable and supportive and prayerful.
God also keeps a purity within the fellowship during the first few weeks - hypocrisy is dealt with, severely - Acts Chapter 5.
But then a grumbling arises - and people are appointed to deal with this unneeded problem.
The leaders would not be diverted from their priorities - and we read of that. Their priorities were prayer and the ministry of the Word. Priorities for leaders and leadership in the Church of Jesus Christ have never changed, or been altered, or modified.
The Gospel begins to spread out of Jerusalem - when a man goes to Samaria - but the job is not done fully - adequately - completely - and Peter and John go down to Samaria to ensure that these new believers in Jesus are born again, just as the believers back in Jerusalem. Acts Chapter 8.
Persecution increases - and we meet Saul of Tarsus who is responsible for the death of the first disciple of Jesus to die for his faith.
Saul is arrested by Jesus outside Damascus - and he is changed. Jesus sends him a friend to help him - Ananias. Saul is filled with the Holy Spirit - baptised in water - and then has something to eat. Look at his priorities. He then goes out to preach! The hunter is hunted. He has to escape.
Where will he go? Where can he go? Would anyone trust him? Was he a plant - a spy? Another man befriends him back in Jerusalem - Barnabas. Saul, now called Paul, has to be hustled off to his home city of Tarsus.
Acts now concentrates upon Peter - and he travels visiting all the needy ones.
God arranges from him to be brought north to Caesarea - where the Gentiles are opened up to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Acts Chapter 10 – and this lands Peter in trouble, as the Gentiles have come to faith in Jesus Christ and are ‘born again’. Peter explains fully to the Jerusalem leadership, and when they are satisfied that this was God at work, they had ‘no further objections’.
However, there is more trouble. James is killed. Up to now we have read of Peter, James and John - now James is killed. The intention is to kill others too. Persecution was growing fast.
Acts Chapter 13 - where we come to the first great missionary movement in the Church of Jesus Christ. Note how it is birthed.
And off Paul goes on three missionary journeys – each lasting between TWO and FIVE years.
There was a real problem facing the Church in Acts Chapter 15 - where people were saying you needed more than faith in Jesus Christ to be a Christian.
Later, Paul is arrested in Jerusalem - and has to flee yet again. This man has no rest - no time off - no easy period. He is imprisoned for two years in Caesarea - and then is shipped off to Rome - where the book of Acts ends.
The details of that storm on the Mediterranean are worth checking for accuracy – the currents – the movements of the ship – the type of cargo – how did they lash a ship that was about to break up – the climatic conditions at that October time of year.
Paul remains a prisoner - and writes some of the letters while imprisoned in Rome. We have the account of Paul's conversion 3 times in the book of ACTS and he never moved away from how he came to faith in Jesus Christ – he never grew away from how he was ‘born again’. Some do!
If we did not have the book of ACTS, we would not know how to come into the Church. Please, do take time to read or re-read the book of ACTS, as we approach another Ascension and Pentecost.
Notice there were no buildings - no official clergy - no committees - or missionary societies to support the missionaries - people were financed by their converts.
There were no H.Q.'s and denominational divisions - and we are now up to around the year 65 A.D.
There is an emphasis on The Kingdom of God - the Name of Jesus - the power of the Holy Spirit.
These need to be three main focuses within the Church of Jesus Christ today.
“Loving Father God – thank You for the account of the birth of the Church of Jesus Christ – and how each time people came to faith they came in the same way – by the same door – Repent – Believe – be Baptised in water – receive the Holy Spirit. Father, thank You for having this repeated – at Samaria, and in Damascus – and Caesarea – and with the twelve men of Ephesus. Lord God thank You for repetition – because we can be so slow to learn. Watch over us and keep us faithful to the Scriptures, in Jesus Name. Amen.”

Great to see new students!
Genesis Matters Because It Is Foundational

Why does Genesis matter? Creation is foundational for all moral and ethical matters.
We are reading these opening Chapters in the book of Genesis.

Animals and man were CREATED to be vegetarian. That changed after the Flood.

Death came after Adam sinned.
You cannot have a struggle for millions of years and death, AND believe The Bible.
One day there will be no more death – and no more suffering.

And yet - death and bloodshed are the means by which man is redeemed and rescued.

All fossils were formed after man sinned - mostly during the Flood - or following some other catastrophic event such as the Ice Age.

Genesis is quoted so much in the New Testament. There is no indication that the text should be read in some allegorical, non-literal, non-historical, non-chronological way.

Genesis may be scoffed at - mocked - ridiculed - allegorised – as some people try to explain it away – or interpret it ‘rationally’ or ‘logically’.

If we were to use the outside influences of science to interpret the Bible, we would have questions about how Jesus was conceived - and the resurrection and ascension.

Genesis is like the Foundation, and if you rip out the foundations, the structures will collapse.
Genesis means - beginnings - of the universe - of life - of man - of sin - of death - of families - of nations - of languages - of the Sabbath - the beginning of the Jews, the Hebrews, the people of God.
What would you make of Israel if it were not for Genesis?

Who owns you - and who rules you - and who sets the rules - if you have no GOD?

Man thinks he can go on his own - and make his own rules - "we can do whatever we want to" - and we have abortion - po*******hy – and various areas of immorality appearing and developing.

God is the Creator who owns you and who sets the rules. When they had no judge or leader they did what was right in their own eyes! Yes, even in Israel.

We go by what GOD says - and not our opinion.

Evolution and abortion go hand in hand. Our embryos DO NOT have gills like fish.

Male chauvinism and evolution go hand in hand.

Na**sm and evolution go hand in hand - Darwin to Nietzsche to Hi**er.

Racism and evolution go hand in hand.

The problem comes from SIN in our HEART - not the animal in our ANCESTRY.

Where we come from determines the rules - the laws - the welfare - the standards.

JESUS quotes from Genesis Chapters 1 and 2. Jesus puts His authority and imprimatur upon Genesis.
These are not two conflicting accounts of CREATION. Jesus is teaching about marriage - men and women are equal but they have different ROLES.

There are certain concepts violated by the philosophy of evolution.
1 - The Goodness of GOD and the NATURE of GOD are MISREPRESENTED.
2 -The DENIAL of CENTRAL BIBLICAL TEACHINGS - Adam's sin brought death and decay leading to the necessity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
3 - The Divine Inspiration of the Bible - the straightforward understanding of The Word of God.
4 - Creation demonstrates the Hand of God and Purpose of God - MAN is God's purpose in Creation - man is the purpose in the God's plan of Redemption and Salvation - Man is the purpose of the MISSION of Jesus Christ - and Heaven is our destination.
5 - The Coming Again of Jesus is under real question - and the need for Restoration (a new heavens and a new earth).
What we are studying is NOT a side issue - it is foundational - central - vital.

“Holy God – Give me a deeper understanding of these opening Chapters in Genesis. May I see how I need to have a firm grasp of every area of Your Holy Word. Lord Jesus, where I am weak, strengthen me. Loving Father, hear our prayers. Gracious God, hear my prayer. Amen”

(This week's "Word from Scotland" - previous articles may be found at and - every prayerful blessing.)

BBC BBQ 🍗 what a blessed day 🙌🏼


The college has seen many people come through and train to become missionaries, pastors, and professionals, but most importantly, all supporting and edifying the people they serve around the world.


We are passionate about training men and women to serve God in their local churches through sound doctrine Bible teaching and a complete surrender to God's calling. Our job is to assist churches in the training of men and women who want to improve their Christian service or seek a path into full-time Christian service.


Baptist Bible College is looking for people who have a sincere desire to serve the Lord and who are seeking to grow in His Word. Is this you?


Class week is well underway! Please pray for Pastor Gritts as he teaches and the students as they learn!
