The Ancient Church Fathers reveals the disciples of the twelve apostles, and what they taught, from their own writings. It documents that the same doctrine was faithfully transmitted to their descendants in the first few centuries. It also describes where, when, and by whom, the doctrines began to change. The ancient church fathers make it very easy to know for sure what the complete teachings of Jesus and the twelve apostles were. You will learn, from their own writings, what the first century disciples taught about the various doctrines that divide our church today. You will learn what was discussed at the Seven General Councils and why. You will learn about the cults and cult leaders who began to change doctrine and spread their heresy.

Webster defines the word institution as “a place where an organization takes care of people for a usually long period of time; or a custom, practice, or law that is accepted and used by many people.” There is no question the Body of Christ from the time it was empowered with the “cloves of fire” until today has had, and continues to have, institutions with which they identify. The institutions surrounding the Lord’s Church has changed as the church has developed from the apostle’s rule, and as well was established in different cultures over the centuries. Decrees, customs and practices throughout church history can be easily observed with a backwards look at the development of the church in the past centuries.It is having the capacity to separate the institution of church, co-joined to the Lord’s Church, which will allow an honest examination of ourselves and our relationship with God and His Church. Join author, pastor, and teacher Buck Keely as he skillfully distinguishes these two identities without casting dispersion on the followers of Jesus and His Church.
Qty 1: The Pilgrim Church – $27.95
Tracing the pathway of the forgotten saints from Pentecost to the Twentieth Century.It ought to be obvious to even the casual observer of history that the real story of the church is not the one recorded in secular history. This classic work by E.H. Broadbent demonstrates that the true heart of this amazing drama is not even recorded in church history books.This is the saga of those intrepid believers, “of whom the world was not worthy”, who not only were persecuted by civil authorities, but were denounced, defamed, and decimated by the professing church.Who were the Waldensians? The Lollards? The Stundists? The Anabaptists? These names were given by their enemies to those who claimed only the name of Christ, and who were prepared to suffer for His cause rather than submit to those man-made traditions that they believed contradicted the Word of God.Written in an engaging style, the author will thrill your heart with the stories of unknown heroes of the faith. It will spur you on to greater devotion to the Lord Jesus and a deeper concern for His suffering people in many countries today.
