Abstraksi: Penelitian ini merupakan kajian terhadap teks Kisah Para Rasul 2:41-47 guna memahami seperti pola hidup jemaat mula-mula untuk menemukan hakikat pertumbuhan gereja. Oleh karena seperti kesimpulan penelitian yang telah dilakukan oleh Yayasan Bilangan Research Center dengan sebuah kesimpulan bahwa pertumbuhan yang terjadi dalam gereja mayoritas disebabkan faktor perpindahan jemaat dan sangat kecil presentase disebabkan penginjilan. Itulah sebabnya dengan menggunakan metode kualitatif khususnya kajian literature terhadap teks Kisah Para Rasul 2:41-47 maka diperoleh beberapa kesimpulan. Pertama, pola kehidupan jemaat mula-mula yang dapat dijadikan contoh model bagi jemaat atau gereja masa kini supaya dapat mengalami pertumbuhan, yakni:  mereka bertekun dalam pengajaran Rasul, mereka bertekun dalam persekutuan, mereka bertekun memecahkan roti, mereka bertekun dalam doa, bahkan mereka juga suka memuji Tuhan. Sehingga mereka disenangi banyak orang dan Tuhan pun menambahkan jumlah mereka. Kedua, hakikat pertumbuhan gereja yakni: Firman Tuhan/ khotbah tentang Yesus Kristus, Pekerjaan Roh Kudus, dan persekutuan serta kesatuan gereja. Ketiga, pertumbuhan gereja harus dimulai dari pertumbuhan kualitas barulah kepada kuantitas.

Kata Kunci: Pertumbuhan, Gereja, Kualitatif, Kuantitatif.
