Having made disciples, the early church faced the problem of how it should be organized. Traveling apostles were the agents through which the ministry first spread, and Paul in his letter to the Corinthians gives them primacy.

BELIEFS AND DOCTRINES OF THE NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH The True Teachings and Doctrines of Jesus Christ and His Apostles as Revealed in the Holy Bible The Nature of God The God Family God—the Hebrew word is Elohim, a plural noun inherently meaning more than one—is a holy Family of intelligent Beings, com-posed of spirit.
A new and different order began with Paul–the Church, the Body of Christ. The Church and Israel. The Church is composed of all believers who have put their trust for salvation in the death and resurrection of Christ (1 Corinthians ). Unlike Israel, the Church is not under a covenantal relationship with God.
But if the Apocrypha is a Scripture, then it should not have any errors. But since it does have errors, as will be demonstrated below, this puts into question whether or not the Roman Catholic Church has properly used its self-proclaimed position as the teaching authority of the Christian Church.

And often the telltale sign is a divorce that follows. POLITICAL CHRISTIANITY IN THE EARLY CHURCH By Robin Phillips It is commonly assumed that prior to Constantine in the fourth century, Christians had as little to do with politics as possible.

Furthermore, in many cases, where the early church did have clear doctrinal teachings, those teachings quite often differed from what is taught in popular Christianity today.
If we want to form the structure of ministry around how it functions, we need to discover the basic functions of the church. Looking at the Great Commission in Matthew and at the early church in Acts (and many other places in scripture), we can begin to see four basic functions or areas of ministry.
In the early church setting there was only one church in an area. Believers attending there were a recognized part of it. In our modern proliferation of churches, having official membership rolls helps a church function orderly. Members are those who agree on the doctrine, the purpose and the philosophy of the church.
