Through the Bible (Acts 15)
11 August 2010
We take a longer look at the dispute that arose in Acts 15, and the defense presented by the apostles. The crux of the matter was the burden of law and tradition that the Jewish believers wanted to impose on the new Gentile believers. The church comes to a decision that brings joy and encouragement, which is what always results when believers extend grace to one another.
Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
