I am sorry to break it to some of you but the church did not start on the day of Pentecost. Scofield was wrong in his view. First of all, the Bible says that 3,000 souls were ADDED to the church. How can you add to something that didn't exist??? The church started when Jesus called out his deciples. Ihave many more scriptural proofs that the church started before the day of Pentecost.
