The Church Through the Ages
Why should church history matter? In our culture, we value personal history, American history and Texas history but we do not value church history. To be an American or a Texan does not mean we are one individually, but it does mean we are part of a people, both past and present. The same is true spiritually. Christians are part of a bigger story than just here and now, and how we view ourselves in light of that past will affect how we live in the present.
