For those who hold to the position that the Church started in Christ's earthly ministry I have a question. In Acts 11:15 to what is Peter referring? I believe he is speaking of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit being the beginning of the church. What do you believe it was the beginning of? I believe the timing of the beginning of the church is an area open to Christian liberty so it is not a contentious issue for me. I am just curious. Well, unless you believe the church started in the Old Testament, then it is a little more important to me.
