After a few days of week 1 of the great challenge: "Power for a community". Today I present my fourth activity with a brief reflection on the "Power of the unity of the apostolic church and how the first blockchain church (HeartChurch) operates under this scheme of unity of the early church.
It is important to highlight the website of the International HeartChurch Ministry, because in this web page you will find all the relevant information of the ministry. In this sense, follow this link:

The unity of the apostolic church is a vital model for the survival of the Lord's church today. To serve God out of this focus is to lose the vision of the Lord's church, which is, "Conquer souls for the Kingdom of heaven."
The book of events greatly highlights the life of the unity power of the Lord's church:
32 The multitude of those who believed was of one heart and one soul. Neither claimed to be their own anything they owned, but they had all things in common. 33 And with great power the apostles bore witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all. 34 So there was no needy among them, because all who owned estates or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of what was sold 35 and put it at the feet of the apostles; and it was distributed to each one according to his need.
Acts 4: 32-36 King James Version (RVR1995)
The word tells us that " The multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul."
The church was characterized by its glorious unity, those who believed were unified in the same faith, the same God and the same spirit.
Although the church multiplied over time as a result of the missionary trips of the apostle Paul, who founded a church throughout Asia, Europe, etc., the unity of the church was never lost. The main church was in Jerusalem, which was in charge of dictating the guidelines and norms to govern the behavior of the first Christians. Certainly, there were many churches founded by Paul, but all were managed within a scheme of apostolic unity.
This principle of unity is what currently characterizes the International HeartChurch Ministry. Its main leaders, in which our brothers stand out: @sirknight and @darlenys01, have strived to make HearChurch a united ministry focused on faith in Jesus Christ. In the same way that the Apostle Paul founded churches in different parts of the world, in this way also the HeartChurch Ministry has had its growth. Currently there are active members in places like Venezuela, Ghana, Nigeria and the Philippines. However, this does not imply that each parish operates independently, but that all are subject to the guidelines of the central leaders of this ministry.
The churches in Paul's day were subject to the guidelines of the main church that was in Jerusalem. Similarly, no parish (@ sc-v, @ sc.g, sc-ny sc-philippines) does what seems best, but everyone awaits the guidelines of the HeartChurch International Ministry.
Unity is very important, because it advances us in the "Vision and Mission" of the business. If we are scattered, unity soon breaks down and divisions between brothers arise.
The HeartChurch Ministry has been using various aspects to maintain unity in the ministry, all members share their posts daily and comment on the message and point of view of others, but the main objective is Christ.
When we share content creation and healthily comment, we are strengthening the bond of unity in HeartChurch Ministry. Similarly, when the ministry tries to reach communities through social projects, the unity of the HeartChurc blockchain church must be revealed. We must all contribute and support the success of the activities that the ministry promotes to achieve the freedom of the human spirit for Christ.
The unit is manifested, both face-to-face and financially contributing some of our resources so that we succeed in what we undertake through the HeartChurch Ministry.
Finally, the example of unity of the apostolic church encourages us to remain united in the HeartChurch International Ministry, where we have many things in common, especially our interest in continuing to spread Christianity both through different social networks and our participation in programs. social.
