Abdul Qader al-Hussan, the head of Jordan’s Rihab Center for Archaeological Studies, tells the Jordan Times that he believes he has found the oldest surviving church, dating between 33 and 70 AD.  However, other experts remain cautious about the claim until further evidence is provided.  It was found under the oldest confirmed church, St. Georgeous, which dates back to 230 AD.
