Two thousand yearshave passed since Jesus Christ presented the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to the rulers and peoples of the world.After all that time, have we lost any of His teachings?It seems so! We find that today's gospel message, taught Sunday by Sunday, differs from the one originally presented by Jesus Christ and His apostles. We are preparing a series of free public talks that will present the Faith Once Delivered and reveal some significant fundamental differences found in modern theology. Join with those who want to know what that original faith was, what happened to it and how it became altered. Reference materials will be provided without charge. A good understanding of the gospel message, as the Early New Testament Church understood it, will enhance our walk of faith.
