Chapter II a Christian Church in Apostolic Times. (n.d.). Chapter II a Christian Church in Apostolic Times. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Can we, piercing the mists of two thousand years, see a Christian Church as it was in Apostolic times-a tiny island in a sea of surrounding heathenism? Our vision gets most assistance from the Epistles of St. Paul, which not only are the oldest records of the literature of the New Testament, but give us much clearer pictures of the earliest Christian assemblies for edification and thanksgiving than are to be found in the Act of the Apostles. The more we study these epistles the more clearly we discern that we trust not project into these primitive times a picture taken from any of the long organized churches of our days. On the other hand, we can see many an analogy in the usages of the growing churches of the mission field. This is not to be wondered at. The primitive church and churches growing among heathen surroundings have both to do with the origins of organization.
