Welcome to the First Church of Jerusalem, which was established by the Lord Jesus Christ in around A.D.30,
and is the genesis of the whole Christian Church.
We hope that you will love our site and visit us whenever you can.
Be blessed abundantly and to overflowing,
in Jesus' Name,
Church at Home
The first church met mostly in homes, and for over three centuries it flourished in this form, its influence spreading to all the known world, and the number of its converts growing exponentially. One of the consequences of the COVID crisis has been a return to the primacy of small Christian groups meeting in homes, as well as an increase in online worship and fellowship.
To support all those who desire to worship along the lines of the first church, whether in their homes or designated church buildings, we have published a first century service book! And we hope that this short guide to breaking bread at home will greatly encourage and strengthen believers through sharing in communion together as families and friends, as well as through taking communion daily as part of their personal devotions.
The Breaking of Bread instituted by the Lord Jesus Christ at the Last Supper is the shared heritage of all Christian believers. This book contains a reconstruction of the Breaking of Bread service as celebrated by the first Christian church at Jerusalem. In this simple act the first believers remembered with great joy the triumph of the Cross, celebrating their deliverance from the penalty and power of sin, their restoration to relationship with God, and their receipt of life eternal.
As at the beginning, this first Thanksgiving may be celebrated in any Christian home by families, friends, or individuals, as part of their daily walk with Jesus. Click on this link, or the image below, to order. May this resource bless you richly at this time!
"Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in Him."
