Overview of The Church of God
Rooted in Historical Commitment
The Church of God is grounded in a strong tradition of New Testament teaching and experience. We trace our modern beginnings from the Protestant Reformation through the Methodist Revival to the spiritual awakening of the Pentecostal Revival.
From our humble beginnings in 1903 to the great successes in ministry and service of subsequent decades, The Church of God has always been dedicated to the premise of renewal of authentic New Testament Christianity and restoration of the Bible church – a commitment both to truth and to people.
Over the years, progressive steps and organizational reformations have produced the restoration of many doctrines, practices, and ministries of the New Testament Church that had been lost during the Middle Ages. As a result of our history we have come to our present condition of restored truth and ministry to people.
Dedicated to Present Ministry
We are dedicated to the proposition of ministering to the needs of the whole man – body, soul, and spirit. We seek to share the grace and power of the risen Christ with all those who need salvation, deliverance, healing, and relationship with the Lord. We seek to share the knowledge of the eternal truths of the Word of God with those who need to be enlightened and liberated from religious confusion and spiritual chaos by the power of the rightly-divided Word of God and its immutable principles.
Prepared for Future Service
We have a deep commitment to the calling on the church to equip all believers, both clergy and laity, for works of ministry and service. Our view of the future is one of ever-expanding opportunities for being the church of the Bible by ministering to the nations. We are committed, therefore, to preparation for future service, believing that the finest hours for the Christian church are yet to come.
What Can I Expect from The Church of God?
In our churches, we are a close-knit group of people who care for each and every person who walks through the door – whether you’re here for the first time or you’ve been here all your life. We believe that God loved us by sending us His son – who is our example because He loved us enough to die for our sins. We strive to be loving towards everyone we meet because to share love is to share Christ.
We believe in the seventh day Sabbath – as God commanded. Jesus kept the sabbath and He is our example. He did not come to abolish the law as it was given to Moses, but through grace and truth He added the dimension of spirit to the church and has perfected it. We follow the laws because we love Him enough to do so. We strive to restore the truth of Christianity’s Judaic heritage to our practices & beliefs. We have a desire to do what is right as commanded by God himself in His Word.
We welcome you to our services and pray that God blesses you in all you do! It is our prayer that you find something here that will help you in your spiritual walk with God and to develop a closer personal relationship with Him.
