Part 2: How Did It Get This Way?


This unsettling video examines what we call 'church' today.  What are some of the root causes of the current atmosphere of mediocrity we find in many of today's Christian institutions?  This video is a journey that uncovers the facts and connects the dots of church history from the early apostles to today. It exposes the real origins of many of the traditions commonly held today.  Biblically based, historically accurate, this riveting video exudes a passion for restoring believers to the simplicity and purity of knowing Christ.





Christ promised that he would build his church and that the gates of hell would not prevail against it. Is it possible that the Church Christ promised to build looks different than much of what we call 'church' today?

In Part 2 of this 4 part documentary video series, we set out to take a look at how 'church' has evolved from the times of the early apostles until today. We delve into the origins of many of today’s Christian institutions such as: 

  • The clergy/laity distinction

  • The function of the elder/overseer.

  • The role of the pastor.

  • Church services

  • Church buildings

  • Sermons

  • Programs & Outreach
