Acts – Partners in the Gospel

No Barriers

Acts 8:26-40 The story of the baptism of the Ethiopian eunuch is a reminder that because of Jesus, there are no more barriers between us and God.

Barnabas plays a unique role in the early church, especially by being a source of encouragement to others. We see him this exemplify this throughout the Book of Acts in various contexts, in various ways, and with great impact on the progress of the gospel.
