Do we have a history?

Do we have a history?.

Do we have a history outside that recorded in the Bible? Are we not direct spiritual heirs of the first century church? When we base everything we do on the Bible, what does it matter what others have said and done before us? Certainly that’s a valid question, don’t you think? Can a truly biblical church have a history outside of the Bible?

To answer that question, I think we have to do some comparisons, holding up our church today next to what we see in the New Testament. First off, we gratefully see that, in their essence, they are the same. Same God, same Lord, same Spirit, same faith, same hope, same baptism… same body, which is the church of our Lord.
