Acts 15 Church Split

Paul and Barnabas remained in Antioch. There they and many others taught and preached the word of the Lord.

Some time later Paul spoke to Barnabas. “Let’s go back to all the towns where we preached the word of the Lord,” he said. “Let’s visit the believers and see how they are doing.” Barnabas wanted to take John Mark with them. But Paul didn’t think it was wise to take him. Mark had deserted them in Pamphylia. He hadn’t continued with them in their work. Barnabas and Paul strongly disagreed with each other. So they went their separate ways. Barnabas took Mark and sailed for Cyprus. But Paul chose Silas. The believers asked the Lord to give his grace to Paul and Silas as they went.Paul traveled through Syria and Cilicia. He gave strength to the churches there (vv. 35-41).

Interesting that church members have been fighting and parting ways since the very beginning!
