When did the Church begin?

I believe Jesus came to earth as the God/man ‘to seek and to save that which was lost’.  Jesus may not have initially emphasized starting the Church, but I believe God’s plan throughout history was to have particular people through whom He would bless all nations.   In the beginning God chose Abraham and his seed from all the nations of the earth to be His chosen people.  After Jesus came things changed or they were tweaked when the Holy Spirit established the Church in Acts 2.  Those chosen to do the work of God would now not be limited to a particular ethnic group but followers would be from all languages, tongues, nations, and people.  So I believe the Church started at the celebration of Pentecost in Jerusalem 50 days after Jesus’ crucifixion.  The book of Acts gives us an account of the birth and growth of the early followers of Jesus.

My intention in this blog is to answer the question, ‘Since Jesus is gone and the Apostles are dead, what do the followers of Jesus do now?’  This includes the main people, events, movements, heretics, and theology.
