About The Church Of God
The Church of God has but one Head, Jesus Christ our Lord and King, our ever present Help and Redeemer. He exercises His authority and power in the Church through the Holy Ghost, who appoints local congregational leaders in the form of pastors, elders, bishops, or the Ministry.
We believe totally in the priesthood of each and every believer and thus the Ministry is but an office of servant-hood ordained by God to direct you to the only One worthy of all praise, honor and glory, Jesus Christ.
We believe that Ministry in the Church is by Christ’s ordination and not the vote of the congregation. It is only God who appoints and ordains.
Further, we hold the belief that God allows female ordination to leadership in the Church. Paul clearly taught that in Christ there was no gender. Every regenerated believer irrespective of race, position, status or gender is equal in the present Kingdom of God.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
The true Church is not Roman Catholic, Protestant or Pentecostal. It is not sectarian or denominational, but a divine entity established on the Earth by Christ in A.D. 33.
Jesus said in Matthew 16:18 ……I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Not only did Jesus build His Church, He named the her after Himself: the Church of God.
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
The Church of God revealed in the Bible is a singular spiritual entity purchased by the blood of Jesus which came from God.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
We are living in the time of the Evening Light; God is calling His people out of sectarian and denominational groups and bringing them back to Zion….
But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
Back to Zion on the highway called holiness ….
And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
This is the day of the restoration, the 7th Trumpet is sounding calling all to forsake man-made religion, also called Babylon, back to the Church called after His name.
While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
