Church of God is The Church of God was founded in upon the principles of Christ as they are revealed in the Bible, the Word of God. It has its foundation of faith and practice in the Scriptures and the vital experience of its constituents is scripturally oriented. Churches of Christ are independent Christian congregations linked with one another through distinguished beliefs and practices. Now represented worldwide as one of the various denominations to evolve out of the American Restoration Movement, they declare biblical foundation for their doctrine and practice and outline their legacy back to the early Christian church as expressed in the New.
This book surveys the history of Christian doctrine from approximately A.D. to It generally follows chronological order and identifies the most significant events in church history, but the emphasis is on tracing doctrinal developments. To further this purpose, it dis-cusses some events thematically rather than in strict chronological File Size: 1MB. Simply put, many of the doctrines that now are considered to be heresy were held by the early church and many doctrines now considered to be mainstream were condemned as heresy by those associated with the early church. Here is a listing of many such doctrines: Baptism .
God is often referred to in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as our Heavenly Father because He is the Father of all human spirits and they are created in His image (see Genesis ). God the Father, His Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost constitute the Godhead, or Trinity, for Mormons. Latter-day Saints believe God is embodied, though His body is perfect and glorified. Jesus - Jesus - The picture of Christ in the early church: The Apostles’ Creed: Even before the Gospels were written, Christians were reflecting upon the meaning of what Jesus had been and what he had said and done.

If you want to further investigate I would recommend the 4th book of John Gill’s work, The Cause of God and Truth, where Gill, working from primary sources and manuscripts, who was a scholar on languages in his own right, has compiled almost an exhaustive list of the early church and some of the best quotes on these doctrines available.

20 Answers: The Early Church reveals the legacy of our forefathers in the Faith, showing how they lived and what they believed. And perhaps most importantly, how the Church they governed, guarded, and preached was the same Church that Jesus founded and the same Church that we have inherited almost two millennia later.
Thus the Word of God was written within the Church, the Body of Christ, flowing from the authority and teachings of Jesus Christ and the oral traditions and writings of the Apostles in the early Christian community. Scripture and Tradition form a unity of the faith experience. Heresy has been a concern in Christian communities at least since the writing of the Second Epistle of Peter: "even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them" (2 Peter ).In the first two or three centuries of the early Church, heresy and schism were not clearly distinguished.
The Church of Christ churches had their beginning in the early 's as a split from the Baptist denomination. Their most prominent leader of the time was Alexander Campbell.
Their only claim to an earlier existence would be through the Baptist churches. The idea that the Church of Christ churches are not a denomination is a play on words. The word "doctrine" comes from the Greek word "didaskolos," and it basically means "teaching." It is used many times in the New Testament.

"For too long certain scholars have been content to portray Irenaeus of Lyons as a well-meaning churchman but incompetent theologian. By offering a careful reading of Irenaeus' polemical and constructive arguments, God and Christ in Irenaeus contradicts these claims by showing that he was highly educated, trained in the rhetorical arts, aware of general philosophical positions, and able to use.
The Church is to be founded on Peter's confession of Jesus Christ as the Son of the living God. No supremacy is here given to Peter, as a comparison of these verses with Johnand Matt -- in which the same privilege of the binding and loosing is given to the whole Church and to all the apostles.

God wishes us .The book of Acts records eyewitness accounts of the early Church from Christ's resurrection until about A.D. Chapter 2 records the beginning of the Church. This special event began when the place where the apostles and other disciples were gathered was suddenly filled with the sound of a mighty wind and “tongues, as of fire” appeared to.Each introduced privately and separately his own peculiar opinion.
