Reformation and Free Church Origins

Designation: CHUR 7013

The Reformation period was one of the key eras of historical change in the last one thousand years. The understanding of the world and humanity’s role within it was reshaped as such key ideas as the priesthood of all believers, grace alone, faith alone, and scripture alone were applied not only to the lives of individuals, but also to the concepts people had of the Church. In northern Europe, new state churches, free-church movements, and Anabaptist groups emerged and continue to be part of the present day religious landscape.
