Acts 2:41-47 - A Generous And Growing Church

41 then they that embraced his doctrine, were baptized: and there were about three thousand converts made that very day. 42 they continued stedfastly in the apostolical doctrine of a community, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

43 and all the people were allarm'd at the many prodigies and miracles which were done by the apostles. 44 All that believed were united together, and had all things in common, 45 so that they sold their possessions and goods, and distributed the money to every one as his occasions required. 46 and continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they did eat their meals with gladness, and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God, and showing benevolence to all the people. and the Lord encreased the church daily with new converts.
