In 1521, the first Protestant church was built in Wittenberg,Germany. The Protestant community was first started by MartinLuther King.
I presume that you mean: (a) A Church exclusively for black people (b) You are talking about the USA In which case the answer is 1773, and it was founded by George Leile and Andrew Bryan.
Martin Luther started the Protestant movement when he sought to to reform the Roman Catholic Church's use of indulgences. The first Protestant communion was celebrated in St Mary's Church, Wittenberg, Germany, in 1521. I think there is some confusion as to what the church is and what the church bu…ilding is. The church is not the building, but the members of the congregation. That being cleared up, the question should be "Where was the first protestant church established?" or "Where was the first protestant church building built?" The contributor above has the correct to where and when the first protestant church was established. ( Full Answer )

The modern Anglican Communion of churches has a very long history which began soon after the time of Christ, when the first churches were planted in England. These churches were independent of Rome, and were known as 'Celtic' churches. However, for a long period (about 600AD to 1536AD) the churches… in England were ruled by the Popes of the Roman Catholic church. This rule was rejected in the time of Henry VIII, and since then the Church of England has been independent again. The word 'Anglican' really just means 'English', and it came into use as just another way to describe the Church of England. However, many denominations in other countries were planted by English Anglicans, and are now part of the worldwide 'Anglican Communion.' ( Full Answer )
Most churches were built of stone. Some were built of other materials, such as wattle and daub or brick, depending on local conditions, since stone was not always practical.
Henry V111 wished to divorce his wife Catherine of Aragon and marry Anne Boleyn. The pope refused to grant the necessary dispensation. In defiance of the pope, Henry married Anne Boleyn and made himself the head of the Church in England. This is the origin of the Church of England.
Exactly what counts as the "first" Church Meetinghouse of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" Church) is actually somewhat debated by scholars. Church Meetinghouses were extremely rare in the Church until well after the headquarters and members moved to Salt… Lake City, about 20 years after the first Church meetings were held. Most Church meetings were held outdoors, in private homes, or in barns. Some consider the Gadfield Elm chapel in Pendock, England to be the first meetinghouse of the Church. This chapel was built in 1836 by a religious society called the "United Bretheren". The majority of the United Bretheren congregation converted to Mormonism and their meetinghouse was deeded over to the Church in 1840. However, just a few years later, the building was sold to fund the immigration of English Church members to the United States. Since it was not originally built by the Church, and since it was not owned by the Church for nearly 100 years (the building was re-purchased by the Church in 1994), it is usually called 'the oldest Mormon church in England', but not the oldest church worldwide. When Church membership moved to Illinois, a community was set up in Ramus (now called Webster). The Mormon congregation in Ramus built their own Church Meetinghouse in the early 1840's. The Ramus meetinghouse was abandoned when the last Church members left Ramus in the 1850's, and was replaced in 1897 by Webster Community Church. Although this is often considered the first "Mormon-built" meetinghouse, it is only considered so because there is no surviving record of a meetinghouse built earlier. The Pine Valley Chapel in Pine Valley, Utah is the oldest Mormon Church Meetinghouse in continuous use. It was built in 1868 and continues to hold regular Sunday meetings today. This is more often considered the "oldest" meetinghouse rather than the "first", but it is much better known because unlike the meetinghouse in Ramus, this one still stands and is still used. Of course, there were Church Meetinghouses in Utah built prior to the Pine Valley Chapel, but none of them are still in existence today. The Church built buildings for other purposes which were sometimes used to hold Sunday services. For example, the Kirtland Temple in Kirtland, Ohio is usually considered the oldest Mormon building, but it is not considered a meetinghouse. It was completed in 1836. However, like all Mormon Temples, the Kirtland Temple was not used for regular Sunday services. It was most often used as a seminary, school, and administrative offices. Special worship services were held there on occasion, as well as community events. The Kirtland Temple was abandoned by 1840, and is now owned by the Community of Christ. In other places, Tabernacles and Boweries were built. These were not considered meetinghouses, but were used mostly for large Church conferences, for community events, or only temporarily. The vast majority of these buildings no longer stand. Examples of these buildings, along with information about the other buildings mentioned, can be found below under "Related Links".

In most major religions, the position taken in prayer and the layout of holy places is determined by a "sacred direction." The sacred direction in Judaism is toward Jerusalem or, more precisely, toward the presence of the transcendent God - "shekinah" - in the Holy of Holies of the Temple, as see…n in Daniel 6:10. Early Christians no longer turned toward the earthly Jerusalem, but toward the new, heavenly Jerusalem. It was their firm belief that when the Risen Christ would come again in glory, he would gather his faithful to make up this heavenly city. They saw in the rising sun a symbol of the Resurrection and of the Second Coming, and it was a matter of course for them to pray facing this direction. There is strong evidence of eastward prayer in most parts of the Christian world from the second century onward. For this reason most churches are aligned so that the congregation is facing East when praying in the Church. However, this is not a universal requirement and many churches face other directions.

For Christians, the Church is the people, not the building. The very first Christian churches met in peoples' houses.

If you mean who founded the Catholic Church, then the answer would be Jesus (or, if you want a more secular answer) Peter. In the New testament, Jesus asks his disciples "Who do you say I am". Peter answers "You are the Christ, the son of the living God". Jesus replies "Indeed, You are Peter (pet…ros mean "rock" in greek) and upon this rock I will build my church" Peter becomes the first Pope. The above is from a religious viewpoint. From a historical standpoint it can be said that the followers of Jesus in Jerusalem (in the first century) started a movement that solidified at the First Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. This council united (more or less) all the branches of what we call Christianity. The council was called by Emperor Constantine I. So, from a historical (rather than purely religious viewpoint) you can say the Catholic church was built by Constantine I. ( Full Answer )
Answer A There were no Christian churches while Jesus was alive. It was not necessary because Jesus was still on the earth in the form of a man. The church (people, not buildings) is the body of Christ on the earth after His resurrection. The spirit of Jesus indwells His people (the church) an…d they are his hands and his feet. The commission of the church is to do what Jesus would do if He were here on the earth. And that is to tell everyone about His love and the sacrifice of his life that he gave for all of mankind so that whoever receives His grace by believing that He is the son of God and calls on His name for salvation can be forgiven of sins and have everlasting life in heaven as opposed to eternal spiritual death in hell forever separated from God. Answer B (Hint on Answer A) If the spirit of Jesus indwells the church, as mentioned above, then which church of which Christian denomination? ( Full Answer )

He didn't. The church remained the same with the same churches and clergy. The only difference was that the church refused to accept the infallibility of the Pope.
It was built to honor and protect the most sacred sites in the Holy Land and all Christianity - the site of Our Lord's crucifixion and his tomb. In addition: It ought to be added, however, that the church was built to honour and protect what tradition holds is the site of the Lord's tomb. In ac…tual fact there are more than one contender for the tomb of Christ, as no one really knows the exact location. The present sepulchre, though likely to be the actual tomb, is not proven to be the actual tomb. This does not really matter, however, as Christians remember and honour what happened at the tomb and not the tomb itself. ( Full Answer )

Most people think of a 'church' as a 'building' for religious services; but this is misleading when it comes to the Bible term. The Greek word used in the Bible is ekÂ·kleÂ·siâ²a from two Greek words, ek meaning 'out', and kaÂ·leâ²o meaning 'call'. It pertains to a group of pers…ons 'called out' or 'called together' either officially or unofficially. It can even refer to non-christian peoples who are 'gathered together'. Example: Acts 19:32 & 41. While most translations simply call the people an 'assembly, gathering, or group'; the Wycliffe Bible actually retains the word 'church', because that's what the original Greek is. To answer the question: ~~ The church or congregation that Christ built on earth, would be his 'group of disciples and followers'. Jesus said that even where 2 or 3 are 'gathered together', Christ would be in their midst, with the promised holy spirit. So really we should not be thinking in terms of a 'building'. A more appropriate word might be 'temple'; but even that word is at times used figuratively. ( Full Answer )

No. This is the verse you are referring to: Matthew 16:18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on thisrock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall notprevail against it. The big question is, "Who or what is the rock?" There is confusionfrom the fact that the Greek words for …Peter and for rock aresimilar, but the meanings are different. The first, petros, means a stone or loose rock; the second, petra, meansrock, such as a rocky ledge. So what Jesus really said was " ...you are Peter ( stone ), and on this rock I willbuild My church He did not say He would build His church on a stonebut on a rock. If Peter is not the rock, then what is? If we stick to the context, ( back in verse 16 Peter confessed thatJesus was "the Christ the son of the living God.") the answer isthat the rock is Peter's confession that Christ is the Son of theliving God, the truth on which the church is founded.

The first foundation of what was originally called the Latin or Western Christianity and later came to be called the Catholic Church were laid by Tertullian, a Roman who lived in Carthage in present day Tunisia in what was then in the Roman Province of Africa. It became the religion of the western p…art of the Roman Empire. The religion of the eastern part of the Roman Empire was Greek or Eastern Christianity, which later became the Orthodox Church. The main centres of Catholicism became Rome and Milan because the former was the seat of the Bishop of Rome and the latter was the Imperial capital of the Roman Empire and attracted many scholars and theologians. St Ambrose, one of the "fathers of the church" was the Bishop of Milan. St Augustine, whose work became the centrepiece of Catholic theology, was a Roman from Thagaste, also in Roman Africa and in present day Algeria.He converted to Christianity and did his theological work in Milan.

A: We are unlikely ever to know where the first church was, but archaeologists believe they have found the world's oldest remaining church, dating back to between 33 and 70 CE. If tests confirm this, it would make it the earliest known place of Christian worship by about 200 years. The head of… the Rihab Centre for Archaeological Studies, Abdul Qader al-Husan, says a very early underground church has been found beneath the ancient St Georgeous Church, which itself dates back to AD230, in Rihab, northern Jordan, near the Syrian border. . Catholic Answer The word "church" is used in many different ways in contemporary society, depending upon your background and education. The Catholic Church has always used the word "Church" to describe the faithful who believe in Jesus Christ and are led by His appointed shepherds: His Vicar, the Pope, and the Bishops and Priests under him. Thus for a Christian, the Church was built upon St. Peter - see St. Matthew 16:17-19 for Our Lord's establishment of His Church. When Our Blessed Lord established His Church, He made it plain that it would be One and Holy. He put St. Peter as His first Vicar (St. Matthew 16:17-19) after the pattern of the Davidic Kingdom which He was re-establishing. This whole episode in St. Matthew is based on the imagery of the Keys from the Davidic Kingdom in Isaiah, see Isaiah 22:15-25). As St. Paul points out the Church is Our Blessed Lord's Mystical Body (Colossians 1:18, 2:18-20, 1 Cor 12:12-31; Eph. 1:22-23; 3:19; 4:13). St. Paul doesn't use the word, Mystical, that was a later explanation by the Church as this is a mystery. The point is He only has ONE Body and it is the Church, so the Church remains, as recited in the Nicene Creed: One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. It WAS the early Church, it was the medieval Church, and it is the modern Church, and it will remain the Church until the end of the world, we have the guarantee of Our Blessed Lord, and the Holy Ghost on this. from Modern Catholic Dictionary by John A. Hardon, S.J. Doubleday & Co., Inc. Garden City, NY 1980 Church . The faithful of the whole world. This broad definition can be understood in various senses all derived from the Scriptures, notably as the community of believers, the kingdom of God, and the Mystical Body of Christ. As the community of believers, the Church is the assembly (ekklesia) of all who believe in Jesus Christ; or the fellowship (koinoia) of all who are bound together by their common love for the Savior. As the kingdom (basileia), it is the fulfillment of the ancient prophecies about the reign of the Messiah. And as the Mystical Body it is the communion of all those made holy by the grace of Christ. He is their invisible head and they are his visible members. These include the faithful on earth, those in purgatory who are not yet fully purified, and the saints in heaven. Since the Council of Trent, the Catholic Church has been defined as the union of human beings who are united by the profession of the same Christian faith, and by participation of and in the same sacraments under the direction of their lawful pastors, especially of the one representative of Christ on earth, the Bishop of Rome. Each element in this definition is meant to exclude all others from actual and vital membership in the Catholic Church, namely apostates and heretics who do not profess the same Christian faith, non-Christians who do not receive the same sacraments, and schismatics who are not submissive to the Church's lawful pastors under the Bishop of Rome. At the Second Vatican Council this concept of the Church was recognized as the objective reality that identifies the fullness of the Roman Catholic Church. But it was qualified subjectively so as to somehow include all who are baptized and profess their faith in Jesus Christ. They are the People of God, whom he has chosen to be his own and on whom he bestows the special graces of his providence. (Etym. Greek kyriakon, church; from kyriakos, belong to the Lord.).

The Catholic Church was not built, so much as born.

Later it was shown to th…e world atPentecost. The Catholic Church is Jesus Christ present in theworld, saving His people.

If you mean 'building belonging to the Church of England', it's hard to say because when Henry the Eighth split from Rome, the existing churches went on being used. If you mean 'When was the first church built in England', we don't really know either, as we don't have good written records from the… 3rd and 4th centuries A.D., the time of the Roman occupation, when archaeology shows us the first Christian churches. The oldest church still being used is probably St. Martin's, Canterbury, parts of which date from the 6th century A.D. ( Full Answer )
