  3. 3. Journey from 100 – 500 Christians continue to pray together and to celebrate the Eucharist motivated by their profound love of Jesus. They were also known for their love of service to others. They reached out to the poor, the homeless, and the unwanted. They welcomed all races and nations to their midst.
  4. 4. Journey from 100 – 500 It is important to remember that while the Church is always guided by the Holy Spirit, it is made up of imperfect human beings who can make mistakes and are capable of sinning. Therefore, conflicts and controversies, corruption and even wars are found throughout the history of the Church.

  8. 8. &quot;I say to thee, thou art Peter, and on this rock I will build My Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.“ - Matthew 16:18
  9. 9. Struggles and Upheaval Persecutions continued because Christians would not worship false gods or obey unjust laws. Many Christians were martyred or sent into exile during the reign of Emperor Diocletion. The first emperor to become a Christian was Constantine. After his conversion he issued the EDICT OF MILAN in 313 AD This edict ended persecution of the Church in the Roman empire and recognized the right of Christians to worship in accordance with their faith. As a result of the new freedom, Christianity spread throughout the Roman Empire
