ACT X

ACT X is a modern day ministry to the "workplace" (or what the Book of Acts calls the "marketplace") based on a 1st century model - to live the Christian faith out in the "marketplace" by applying Biblical principles to our work ethic, our communications, our interpersonal interactions and our attitudes so we can exemplify Matthew 5 and be salt to the world and "shine" the living message of the Gospel to bring glory to God. The foundational belief behind the ACT X ministry is that evangelism or "church growth" occurs when we live the faith out in our everyday lives, i.e. in the "marketplace" because non-believers don't typically come to church on their own accord - they come to church when their co-workers, who are believers - invite them.

So the focus of ACT X is to teach adults to exemplify a Christian work ethic on the job, because as we advance in our chosen fields because of our Christ-centered work ethic, then others will take note and will want to learn how we "succeed" on the job, which is by living our faith and this is where we will win new believers for the Body of Christ. Once this happens, then new believers will join the local church, and it is the local church's role to disciple those new believers who came to faith in the marketplace. This is how the Bible records that church growth occurred in the 1st century, and because the Word of God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, it is the hope and faith of those behind the scenes in ACT X that this is how church growth will continue to occur in the 21st century.

 

Who is Behind the Scenes at ACT X ?

The ACT X team is supported financially by our marketplace partners at Aararat Consulting, is supported by intercession via our prayer partners at Prayer Canada and is accountable to the church community and to the larger Body of Christ via an Advisory Board of pastors, national ministry leaders and marketplace leaders. The ACT X mission is to equip young adults, and adults-young-at-heart, with Biblical training to impact their local church, their community at large and the business world around them - which is referred to as the marketplace in the Book of Acts. The Bible teaches in Acts that this is how the church grew - by Christians living and sharing their faith with others in a caring sense of community - in homes, in churches and in the marketplace.

"And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved" (Acts 2:47 NIV).

ACT X functions to equip believers with training in the word of God, in accordance with 2 Timothy 3:16.17 so that they can be more effective for their employer on the job and advance in their careers, and so that they can be a living witness for the Gospel at work, and also to become more equipped to carry out the mission of the Body of Christ in their local church and their local community...

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

                                                                                          2 Timothy 3:16,17
