Best Answer

The Catholic Church was established by Jesus Christ Himself. Read Matthew 16:18, Jesus clearly sets up the Church and promises that the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. He also says to peter that whatsoever he binds in earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever he looses on earth shall be loosed in heaven. By doing so he sets peter up as the first pope.
