Tell others about Jesus like Evan Roberts did:

 We who are Christians are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________



Part 1: The Word

Part 1: The Word explores how the written and spoken word consisting of scriptures, sermons and creeds have remembered and celebrated God's story throughout centuries of Christianity, including:

  • What early church documents reveal about ancient worship practices and why many churches are recovering and continuing these ancient faith practices today.

  • How stained glass has been used to tell the stories of scripture, including a visit to the oldest continually operating stained glass studio in America.

  • Why influences such as the printing press and the translation of the Bible into the language of the people dramatically changed how scripture is used in worship.

  • How great preaching movements of the church have influenced the development of sermons and homilies.

  • Why creeds such as the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds have been an important tool for teaching the essentials of the Christian faith.


For followers of Jesus Christ, worship has spanned over two thousand years to include a long and diverse history of sacred practices.  

The many ways in which the faithful have preserved and celebrated God's story is limited only by the human imagination.

A History of Christian Worship:  Ancient Ways, Future Paths is a six-part series that explores centuries of worship practices, as seen through the eyes of Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox churches and discussed by leading voices from a wide cross-section of Christians.  From scripture, sermons and creeds to baptism and the Eucharist, from art and music to drama and media, from prayer and contemplation to service and ministry, viewers will discover the significant people and events that have shaped history and learn how modern worship practices are rooted in the earliest foundations of the Christian faith.

Join us on a journey from ancient ways to future paths as we discover a history of Christian worship. _______________________________

Our Comments:


These are Videos that we ourselves would have liked to put out if only we were filmmakers!  

We are surprised to find ourselves in another new movement!  

It is the Ancient Faith / Future Faith movement, that comprises a study of the early Church for applicability to our current Christian lives and church practice.

This just happens to be what we have been living for the past eleven years!
