Grace Valley Christian Center announces that the Rev. P.G. Mathew’s latest book, “Power of the Holy Spirit: An Exposition of Acts,” is available at the church and through the GVCC website.

“The gospel is the power of God for the salvation of all who believe,” Mathew said in a news release. “Jesus commissioned his disciples to go into all the world to spread this gospel. But how can fearful, uneducated, ordinary people accomplish this great task?

“Jesus himself gave the answer: ‘You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth’ (Acts 1:8).”

The power of the Holy Spirit is seen throughout the book of Acts, from when the disciples were set ablaze by the Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, to Paul’s long-awaited arrival in Rome. In this study of the history of the early church, readers will see how this Holy Spirit power is also available to them in spreading the good news of new life in Christ.

Mathew, who holds three graduate degrees in theology from Central and Westminster Theological seminaries, is the founder and senior minister of Grace Valley Christian Center in Davis. Originally a scientist from India, he is also a former professor of Greek and systematic theology, has traveled widely for Christian mission interests, and is the founder and president of Grace Valley Christian Academy.

Other titles by Mathew include “Romans 1-8: The Gospel Freedom,” “Victory in Jesus (A Feast from Joshua),” “Good News for All People (Romans 3),” “The Wisdom of Jesus (The Sermon on the Mount),” “Muscular Christianity (Hebrews),” “The Normal Church Life (1 John)” and “The Joy of Christian Giving.”

All are available through the church website, www.gracevalley.org, and at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

Grace Valley Christian Center is a Bible-centered assembly at 27173 County Road 98, Davis. For more information, call 530-756-5255 or visit the church website.
