When the people heard this, they were deeply upset. They asked Peter and the other apostles, "Brothers, what should we do?"
Peter answered them, "All of you must turn to God and change the way you think and act, and each of you must be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins will be forgiven. Then you will receive the Holy Spirit as a gift.
This promise belongs to you and to your children and to everyone who is far away. It belongs to everyone who worships the Lord our God."
Peter said much more to warn them. He urged, "Save yourselves from this corrupt generation."
Those who accepted what Peter said were baptized. That day about 3,000 people were added [to the group].
The disciples were devoted to the teachings of the apostles, to fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer.
A feeling of fear came over everyone as many amazing things and miraculous signs happened through the apostles.
All the believers kept meeting together, and they shared everything with each other.
From time to time, they sold their property and other possessions and distributed the money to anyone who needed it.
The believers had a single purpose and went to the temple every day. They were joyful and humble as they ate at each other's homes and shared their food.
At the same time, they praised God and had the good will of all the people. Every day the Lord saved people, and they were added to the group.
