1 THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CHURCH AT CORINTH (Acts 18:1-8)

2 WHY STUDY THIS SUBJECT? Jesus came to build his church, Matt. 16:18 Churches established in New Testament by men guided by the Holy Spirit, 1 Cor. 2:12-13 Churches were established as part of God’s plan to save man, Jn. 3:16; Acts 2:47; Eph. 1:22-23; 5:23; Acts 20:28

3 THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CHURCH AT CORINTH (Acts 18:1-8) I. THE GOSPEL WAS PREACHED AT CORINTH, vs. 4- 5; Mk. 16:15; 1 Cor. 2:1-5; 3:10-11; Acts 18:5-6; 1 Cor. 1:18-23; Matt. 19:9; Rom. 1:16; Acts 20:26; Ezek. 3:18-21 "Most Americans now believe churches should speak out on political and social issues, according to a study that finds religion playing a growing role in U.S. poli- tics." (Stars and Stripes, July 6, 1996, p. 9)

4 WHY DID PAUL CONTINUE TO PREACH SUCH A MESSAGE? It was not Paul’s message, 1 Cor. 2:1; Mk. 16:15 It was a message that would save sinners, Rom. 1:16 So as not to bring guilt upon himself, Acts 18:6; 20:26-27; Ezek. 3:18-21

5 THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CHURCH AT CORINTH (Acts 18:1-8) I. THE GOSPEL WAS PREACHED AT CORINTH, vs. 4- 5; Mk. 16:15; 1 Cor. 2:1-5; 3:10-11; Acts 18:5-6; 1 Cor. 1:18-23; Matt. 19:9; Rom. 1:16; Acts 20:26; Ezek. 3:18-21 II. RESPONSE OF THOSE THAT HEARKENED A. Believed, v. 8; Rom. 10:17; Jn. 12:32-33; 1 Cor. 2:2 B. Repented, Lk. 24:47; 1 Cor. 6:9-11 B. Repented, Lk. 24:47; 1 Cor. 6:9-11 C. Confessed Christ's name, Phil. 2:11; Rom. 10:9-10 C. Confessed Christ's name, Phil. 2:11; Rom. 10:9-10 D. Baptized, v. 8; 1 Cor. 1:12-17; Acts 2:41, 47 D. Baptized, v. 8; 1 Cor. 1:12-17; Acts 2:41, 47

6 Argument: If baptism is necessary to salvation, why wasn’t Paul sent to baptize? (1 Cor. 1:17) “Were ye baptized in the name of Paul?” (1 Cor. 1:13) It is implied that they had been baptized, however, not in the name of Paul. Paul’s words of v. 17 are said in reference to the problem of division at the church in Corinth (1 Cor. 1:12, 14-15)
