Why study Church History?
Winston Churchill said, “Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.” The saying applies to politics as well as to the Church. The writer of Ecclesiastes wrote, “There is nothing new under the sun.”
No one book or course entitled “Church History” could adequately cover all the major people, eras or events of the Christian Story. With that in mind, The Church History Seminar is designed to give the student a broad picture of our Story in the hope that a greater love and appreciation for the Church be cultivated. It is also an intention of this course that the student obtain a better picture of what our Lord has been doing and continues to do through His Church through the ages in order that we might catch a better glimpse of our place in the Story.
