"Why I'm in Acts 29" | John Ryan

by John Ryan, Lower Midwest US Director for Acts 29 One of the five theological distinctives of Acts 29 is “Gospel centrality in all of life." This is one of the primary reasons why I am in Acts 29. In the last 11 years, every part of my life has been changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ through the men and women of Acts 29.

In this video, Sam discusses our new Distinctives and explains why they are important.  Sam Storms is Lead Pastor for Preaching & Vision at Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA.​ Below are some quotations and timestamps from the video. Read the full definition of the Distinctives HERE. (3:32) "We have no desire to be different for being different sake. That's not the purpose of these distinctives. We don't want to just stand out in a crowd and take a position that is contrary to others. We have no impulse or instinct to do that in Acts 29. We really do believe that these distinctives make a difference in how we ...
