A Church is Planted in Philippi

Media, Philippians, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


The first week of our series in Philippians, we go back to Acts 16:11-34 and look at the beginnings of the church that Paul will later express great affection for. The church in Philippi began with a few significant interactions between Paul and three very different people. Through the stories of Lydia, the wealthy seller of purple goods, a demonized slave girl, and an average Roman jailer, we see that the church then and now is built of people such as ourselves that are centered on the person and work of Jesus.

An All-Sufficient Savior

Acts, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

In Acts 15:36-16:40 we witness the planting of the church in Philippi. It is hard to imagine a more diverse group: severely religious, severely enslaved and severely indifferent. These three are racially, socially, psychologically worlds apart. But, what we see in this passage is that Jesus is an all-sufficient savior that applies and appeals to all people, everywhere – even today.
