The Fellowship of the Believers form a community

Acts 2:42-47, about AD32-AD34.
The early disciples formed a community of believers, based on their beliefs for a new way of living.

The believers based their new faith in Jesus and devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, the fellowship, the breaking of bread and prayer.
The Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. The number of believers, including some of the priests and leaders of Israel, had in a few short months topped 5000 people.

Life among the Believers or the believers form a community

2:42 The believers continued to devote themselves to what the apostles were teaching, to fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to times of prayer.43 A sense of fear came over everyone, and many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles. 44 All the believers were united and shared everything with one another. 45 They made it their practice to sell their possessions and goods and to distribute the proceeds to anyone who was in need. 46 United in purpose, they went to the Temple every day, ate at each other’s homes, and shared their food with glad and humble hearts. 47 They were praising God and enjoying the good will of all the people. Every day the Lord was adding to their number those who were being saved.
