Acts – The History of Missions


Acts furnishes us the principles for revival and missionary work. The general theme is getting the gospel into all the world through the power of the Holy Spirit beginning in Jerusalem and from there spreading into Judea, Samaria and the uttermost part of the world. We need to go to the Epistles and not the book of Acts for our doctrine.

It is very fitting for Lou Nicholes to be the author of this book as he has spent most of his adult life as a missionary. The first 26 years were devoted to helping local churches across America reach young people with the gospel of Christ and disciple them in their walk with the Lord. For the next 12 years he helped organize, train and took over 2000 young people on short-term mission trips to over 40 countries, seeing over 40,000 people make decisions for Christ. His most recent endeavors have been to help start new mission projects and recruit new missionaries for Asia which comprises 62% of the world’s population. He suggests this outline for Acts:

  1. The Gospel is taken primarily to the Jews (Chapters 1-12).
    1. Peter is the chief character.
    2. Jerusalem is the central city.
       
  2. The Gospel is preached to the Gentiles (Chapters 13-28.
    1. Paul is the principal character.
    2. Antioch is the main city.
