THE EARLY CHURCH WAS THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
Today’s near-countless Protestant denominations all claim identity with the true Church founded by Jesus Christ, as it existed it in its earliest, purest form.
But when we look at the Church during the ages of the apostles and the Church Fathers, we find seven sacraments, the primacy of the Roman pontiff, devotions to Mary and the saints, and, at the center of it all, a liturgy that re-presents the sacrifice of Calvary.
If that sounds like Catholicism to you, that’s because the early Church was the Catholic Church.
All Catholics who want to know and defend the Faith need to learn about the time of the apostles and the Fathers, for it is in these ages that the Trinitarian, Christological, and Marian doctrines are defined, the structure and operation of Christ’s Church matures, and the form of Eucharistic worship takes shape.
To deepen your knowledge of this exciting time in Christian history, join the Catholic Answers apologists along with special guest speakers at our 2019 conference, The Early Church Was the Catholic Church.
