The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering changes lives forever by empowering North American missionaries to bring the gospel to the lost. With over 269 million lost people, North America and its major cities are some of the most spiritually dark places in the world. Join us on the mission to equip every missionary and reach every lost person in the United States and Canada.
But when they believed Philip, as he preached the good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized — Acts 8:12 (HCSB).
The early church worked together to effectively build the kingdom of God. Today, Southern Baptists follow that lead. The keys to the success of the early church in Acts remain the same today. In Acts 8, we find Philip preaching Jesus to the lost people of Samaria—a place full of evil. And the Holy Spirit broke through the darkness. People were delivered from unclean spirits. Illness and disease bowed down to Christ. Even notorious Simon—the feared sorcerer who practiced witchcraft—turned to Jesus and was baptized. The Spirit of God swept through Samaria, and Scripture says there was “great joy in that city.” It was a victory for Christ and His kingdom.
Since Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever, the same power that raised Him from the grave lives inside His people. It is in Jesus’ name, and with His power, that we send our Southern Baptist missionaries to the unreached Samarias of North America. To preach, to baptize, and to make disciples together for His kingdom.
