  1. I still would hold to the Crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth! It is history and always historical reality. From here, with the Resurrection is the genesis of the Apostolic Church, which swept the Roman Empire! But, if I have to say just outside the NT, it would again be the Holy Catholic Church, which was and is much more than Rome however.

  2. Ooh, that’s an interesting question. I would have to say the era of Protestant reformation. I think Martin Luther is one of the most important, but Zwingli and Calvin and others also changed the course of the Church and world history (with varying degrees of success, of course).

  3. Yes, I know but you did say Church History, it simply began in the Roman Empire! lol

    Also yes, I too feel that it was the Reformation Churches, Luther to Calvin, etc. That really began to focus on the Apostolic Doctrine, the Church and of course St. Paul! With the renewal of the Pauline Gospel, the Church became the Church of the Incarnation again, most alive to the doctrine of “Christ Jesus”, risen, ascended & glorified, the God-Man in “session” at the Right Hand, and Throne of God, for His people!

  4. The most important time in church history is NOW. This is the time that we are in. This is the time that we can affect. To each generation of believers the most important time in church history is their own. Because it is only now that we can shape the future, just as the Medeival, Reformation, Enlightenment and Postmodern periods have shaped ours. Let us take responsibility and use wisdom in the decisions we make as it will shape the future generations of believers-one way or the other.

  5. Sounds good, but each generation of Christians must pick up the historical church and seek to march forward, it is always an “incarnational” reality! (1 Tim. 3:15-16) To use a military metaphor, again, we are only as good as the “point” man, and the man in the rear. March carefully, but surely!
