At first, Jesus had a few followers called disciples.  They traveled  with Jesus.  Then the crows around Israel, and especially Jerusalem  followed him.  Then the church spread to Gentiles.  Romans and Acts  speak to building a global church from humble beginnings.

And after there had been much debate, Peter stood up and said to  them, “Brothers, you know that in the early days God made a choice among  you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel  and believe. And God, who knows the heart, bore witness to them, by  giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us, and he made no  distinction between us and them, having cleansed their hearts by faith. (English Standard Version, 2001/2016, Acts 15:7-9 (new tab))

“Therefore let it be known to you that this salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will listen.” (English Standard Version, 2001/2016, Acts 28:28 (new tab))
