When you hear the term “Church History”, many thoughts come to mind. One of those thoughts might be the widely held assumption that the Roman Catholic Church is the original church established by the Lord Jesus. However, a proper study reveals a much more complex issue. The beginning for the early Christian church is found in the greatest resource know to mankind, the Holy Scriptures. In them you will find what a true Christian Church looks like and how it should behave. Since those early beginnings, the succeeding pages of church history have been well documented. Close examination reveals a group of people who put into practice the truths found in the Scripture and of another group that practiced a different system of belief and sadly, those pages are written in blood.
