Worship in the Early Church

Some of the worship practices of early Christians --100-400 A.D.-- were strikingly different but perhaps more biblical than ours today.

What did worship according to Scripture look like in the first Christian centuries? How did the type of water used in baptism or the shape of the font, for example, proclaim biblical teaching? What was the celebration of the Lord's Supper like? Why was a person's posture during prayer so important?

Presented at the 2006 Calvin Symposium on Worship.
