Church History For Young People by Peer Olsen Stromme

The Christian Church is in reality as old as the world itself. It has existed ever since the creation of man; for there always have been true believers, who have done God’s will on earth, and who have gone to heaven when they died. And all these have been saved through faith in Christ. The church history of the time before the coming of Christ is the history of the Jews, God’s chosen people, as recorded in the Old Testament.
