THE CHURCH OF GOD
The founding of The Church of God occurred when Jesus Christ called together his

The Church continued under theocracy, governed by the immediate direction of God, growing and expanding until its influence was felt in all the known world.
Its success and identity were interrupted, however, in 325 A.D. at the Council of Nicaea when the Church, under the power and influence of the Roman government, headed at that time by Emperor Constantine, abandoned theocracy and established an Episcopal form of government to replace it. It was at this point that the true Church ceased to function but the organization continued. Read and study Isaiah 54:7 and II Thessalonians 2:3.
After 1578 years, a time known in religious history as the Dark Ages, the true Church

With Holy Ghost direction the Church is now operating in over 47 countries with more countries being opened each year. This site is maintained with the hope that peoples in countries where the Church may not be reestablished may by Holy Ghost direction find and contact us. We are driven by the command of the head of the Church which requires that we go...into...all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15).
