Part 4 of Series: “Becoming a Transformational Church” Acts 11:25-26 Transformation Defined: Learning to think BIBLICALLY and Behave ACCORDINGLY. The theological word for this process is Sanctification. Teaching to see Lives Changed: 1. Barnabas and Saul (Paul) implemented an intentional TEACHING ministry at Antioch. Acts 11:25-26 2. Why was teaching important? Because JESUS said so: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matt. 28:19-20, NIV). 3. The Believers at Antioch were transformed in five distinct areas: a. Upholding the integrity of the GOSPEL and preserving its purity (Acts 15:1-2). b. Their view of FINANCIAL resources and the use of money (Acts 11:28-30). c. The church’s value of and engagement in corporate WORSHIP services (Acts 11:27-30; 13:2-3). d. Sending MISSIONARIES and sustaining them on their journeys. e. Problem solving and CONFLICT resolution in the fellowship (Acts 15:30-41). 4. The Goal of Transformational Churches: to help people embrace a BIBLICAL worldview.
