”All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer. A deep sense of awe came over them all…” Acts 2:42-43 (p.832)
1. Build each other up.
“We should help others do what is right and build them up in the Lord.” Romans 15:2 (p.867)
”And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need.” Acts 2:44-45 (p.832)
2. Make disciples.

”They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity—“ Acts 2:46 (p.832)
3. Live in harmony.
