Restorationism

The Christian Restoration movement emerged in the early 19th century, primarily in the United States. It advocates for a restoration of the original church established by Jesus and his disciples, as described in the New Testament. Restorationists believe that the church has deviated from its original teachings and practices over time, and that it is necessary to return to those original teachings and practices in order to restore the true church. The roots of Christian Restorationism can be traced back to the Protestant Reformation, when reformers such as Martin Luther and John Calvin challenged the authority of the Catholic Church and argued for a return to the Bible as the sole source of religious authority. However, it was not until the 19th century that Christian Restorationism emerged as a distinct movement. In the early 1800s, a number of groups arose in the United States that advocated for the restoration of the original church. Restorationists from these groups established missions around the world, and Christian Restorationism today has a significant presence in many countries.
