In this study from winter 2022-2023, we discover our heritage in the ancient church through a study of church history as she grew rapidly and spread in the first few centuries after Christ’s death. We gain an appreciation for how key doctrines and heresies developed, see examples of how early Christians coped with an adverse culture, and are humbled by the “all in” faith of those early believers.

Remember the days of old; consider the years of many generations; ask your father, and he will show you, your elders, and they will tell you.

Deuteronomy 32:7

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 1:9
