established by Him in 33 AD in Jerusalem. Under the direction of the apostles, the disciples “devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer” (Acts 2:42). They heard the gospel, repented and were baptized (immersed) “for the forgiveness of their sins” then received the gift of the Holy Spirit (verse 38). God added them to the church (verse 47). There was no “sinner’s prayer” for salvation (nowhere in Bible). All sinners are saved the same way these were saved on the Day of Pentecost. Chapters 8, 9, 10, 16 and 22 have other examples of conversion to Christ. It has never been enough to just start the Christian life, any more than just starting to run a race. Our devotion to the true teaching and practice laid out by the Lord and His apostles must be continued until we die, or we will fall away from grace and not receive “the crown of life” in heaven. Following doctrines of men, church creeds, catechisms and church laws will not bring an eternal reward (Mark 7:6-8; Gal 1:6-9). Ask for: “The Apostles’ Doctrine.”
