The History of the Church

We will study the founding and character of the apostolic church, gradual changes from the spirit and practice of the early church, the accumulation of human tradition, and spiritual corruption in medieval times. We will thrill at the lives of great Christians of every century, and at the courage of the dedicated reformers of the 16th and 17th centuries. We will come to understand many of the developments in Christianity up to now, including the origins of various denominations and traditions.
