Welcome to our great Christian heritage class, CH501XL (Church History I). I am looking forward to joining with you in this learning venture. We will have an opportunity to study the development of the global Christian church that Jesus Christ has built and the gates of Hades will not overcome (Matthew 16:18). We will examine the theological issues of the primary texts in their own historical contexts. The story of the last two millennia that are full of examples of men and women can challenge, encourage, and teach us. Our study of the history of the world Christianity will provide an understanding of the present state of Christianity/Christian Church and insights and wisdom for the future.
