    Had gathered the Church together - The Church by which they had been sent on this very important and successful mission.

    They rehearsed all that God had done with them - Not what they had done themselves; but what God made them the instruments of working.

    And how he had opened the door of faith - How God by his providence and grace had made a way for preaching Christ crucified among the heathen; and how the heathen had received that Gospel which, through faith in Christ Jesus, was able to save their souls.

    Barnes' Notes on Acts 14:27

    They rehearsed ... - Acts 11:4. They related what had happened; their dangers and their success. This they did because they had been sent out by the church, and it was proper that they should give an account of their work; and because it furnished a suitable occasion of gratitude to God for his mercy.

    All that God had done ... - In protecting, guarding them, etc. All was traced to God.

    Had opened the door of faith - Had furnished an opportunity of preaching the gospel to the Gentiles, 1 Corinthians 16:9; 2 Corinthians 2:12.
