Committed to teaching and obeying the word of God

An Important Question

In Acts 15, the leaders of the early church come together to discuss and address a question that arose within the church: as a Gentile, can you turn directly to Jesus as the savior of the world? Or, must you become a Jew first to turn to Jesus? In this section of scripture, we explore the points that were discussed on why there is no need for Gentiles to become Jews (and therefore require circumcision), and why we can turn directly to Christ in faith, and not relying on any works to earn us salvation.
