"You don’t love Me or each other like you did at first.
Look how far you have fallen! 
Turn back to Me and do the works you did at first."
- Jesus (Revelation 2:4-5)


Hey, we're Josh and Tess, a husband and wife team. Our mission is simple: TO HELP THE MODERN CHURCH PRACTICE THE FAITH, LOVE, AND OBEDIENCE THAT THE EARLY CHURCH PRACTICED, AND TO PRACTICE IT OURSELVES.

We're the authors, songwriters, and film directors behind the books, audio books, YouTube series, music, and films on www.ActsInitiative.com. We give our resources away for free. We've also started a food ministry in Pensacola, Florida, where we hand out meals and Bibles to homeless people in the area.

Why?

Because we were both lukewarm, Sardis church Christians (Revelation 3), and Jesus radically woke both of us up when we least expected it. We do what we do because we want to see other Christians waking up, too, and adopting the mindset that the Book of Acts believers had.

Meaning...

In the Book of Acts, the early Church practiced a kind love and obedience that is foreign to us today. They acted on the conviction that they should share everything, live as one, demonstrate love through their actions, and eagerly wait for the return of the Lord. They kept their focus on the things of heaven and not the things of this world. When Christians live like this - like we’re supposed to! - the world sees Jesus. (John 17:20-23).

The Book of Acts believers anxiously await Jesus’ return and kept their eyes on the things of heaven (Col 3:2). They were so un-human in their displays of love and compassion towards others that the world was taken aback. (John 13:34-35). They counted nothing as their own but gave freely. (Acts 4:32-35). They really did seek His kingdom and righteousness... first, only, and always. (Matt 6:33).

We believe that this is Real Christianity, and is key to abolishing the spiritual dryness, selfishness, and apathy that is so prevalent in the modern Church. If the modern Church returns to this right way of living we believe we will see the number of saved souls increasing massively. (Acts 4:33).

We believe that it's possible to resurrect Real Christianity, the kind that can change our city (and yours!).

Your support helps us reach more people, and we don't take any gift lightly.
