The study of church history provides a fascinating panorama of how the fledgling church established by Christ’s apostles took hold in the ancient world and went on to become a huge worldwide movement in the two millennia that followed. The spiritual journey of the church through history is an exciting drama filled with dynamic personalities, major world events, and spiritual insights that are applicable to our hearts today. From the time of the early church to the faithful today, we see how “the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18 ESV).
