Many Christians know little about the history of the church. As a result, they're missing a testament to God's steadfastness over the centuries. In this monumental study series, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey sheds crucial light on church history, demonstrating God's promise to build and preserve His church so that "the gates of hell will not prevail against it" (Matt. 16:18). Across seventy-three messages, learn why having a working knowledge of church history remains relevant for our personal lives today, and for the church as a whole.

  • Part 1 A.D. 100-600 (Twelve 23-minute messages)

Dr. W. Robert Godfrey is president and professor of church history at Westminster Seminary California. He also serves as a Ligonier Ministries teaching fellow.

                                    The twentieth century witnessed the rise and fall of empires, as well as the vast growth of the church through world missions. In many ways, the twentieth century contains the best and worst of human history. In this lecture series, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey considers the development of the church in the modern world, even as world wars, social revolutions, and doctrinal controversies threatened its expansion. Though the church met many challenges in this century, Christ continued to build His church as His gospel spread throughout the world.
