Antioch Characteristics

Our good friend Andrew Shearman was with us this weekend. He preached in our Sunday services about the Characteristics of the church at Antioch. You can listen to it here but it set me thinking about this great church. Think I will post some things as I look at in a little more detail.

Here are 7 characteristics that he observed. (Acts 13)

1. They had people who were willing to leave home.
2. They were prepared to break new ground.
3. They stood out from the culture. (so much so they were given a nickname - Christians)
4. They fasted and prayed.
5. They Knew how to really worship.
6. Their leadership were united and had a deep love and commitment to each other.
7. They trusted the Holy Spirit.
