(Day 3) Early Church Problems and Constantine [Click to View]
A look at the spirit and ethos of the early Christians before Constantine. This is the second part of the Anabaptist history series. In this video I focus on the ethos of the early Church. I believe that the focus of the early Church was a non-compromising dedication to the person and message of Jesus Christ.
