How Did the Early Church Become Healthy Places of Change?

How did the early church manage to radically impact the evil, brutal, slavery centered, societies of Rome, Greece, and Palestine without political or financial clout? Why was poverty and ignorance not a total impident to Christian growth, change and impact?

Because they built communities that mimicked the belief and activities of Jesus. The communities  of believers were families that followed, as best they could, the things Jesus did taught, and modeled.

Their assets included:

No New Testament.
No church buildings.
No trained leaders.
Mostly people of poverty.
Many former and current slaves.
No equality of males and females.
Tremendous persecution by rulers.

And you thought you had problems!
