About Acts 17:11

In the book of Acts the people in Berea were commended for their willingness to study the Scriptures when the Apostle Paul presented the gospel to them:

“These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.”  - Acts 17:11

About Acts 17:11

The mission of Acts 17:11 is to help Christians by:

  • educating them on how to study the Bible
  • assisting them to discover their specific ministry calling
  • providing them resources to help them grow spiritually

This will be accomplished by producing videos, books, devotionals, studies and other educational materials. Our desire is for every believer to become a Berean, to understand the Scriptures, and imitate Christ in their daily lives.
