Acts 4:32 tells us that the early church was one. The primitive saints did not make matters a test of fellowship that God did not make a condition of salvation. The Church of the Living God was ready to work together in her mission to reach the lost with the saving grace of Jesus and to help strengthen the saved.
If we could work together realizing that we may differ on non-essential things, we would see greater cooperation in evangelism. Let’s put aside our differences that fall into the realm of opinion and let us unite in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is not to say we have to sacrifice any teaching we hold. We must, in the areas of non-essentials, give out differing brethren the same liberty we would want them to give us.
If we are willing to learn from the experiences of the early church, we can have church growth. The early Christian went everywhere preaching the Word. (Acts 8:4)
If we put into practice the methods used by the early church, we, today can have church growth. We can work for the unity of all believers in Christ. Remember it is the Savior’s prayer that we all be one. Let our circle of fellowship be as large as His.
