The History of Doctrine

For the past 2,000 years, Jesus has been sovereignly building His Church. He has used all manner of people, places, and events to shape the theological traditions that continue to influence people today. Travel back in time as we spend åfive months together tracing the historical development of theology, and gain a much greater understanding of those who have gone before. In the end, we will be sobered by the constant threat of error, while being motivated to take our place in the long line of faithful witnesses who have stood the test of time.
