What Is Church Of God

I attended a Church of God. Only once did I hear the word "pentecostal." It perked up my ears because I didn't know that the Church of God is pentecostal. Is the Church of God pentecostal?

Moderator - Yes it is a pentecostal denomination, but it isn't United Pentecostal.

There's No such a thing as trinity Pentecost, bapticost etc. 2nd. Cor. 11 v 14 says there is.
Acts 2 v 38 on the day of Pentecost, Is The Only Pentecost !

There are quite a few organizations who call themselves Church of God:

Worldwide Church of God
Church of God in Christ
Church of God - Prophecy
Church of God - Holiness
Church of God - Restoration
Church of God International
Christian Baptist Church of God
Church of God - Anderson
Church of God - Guthrie, Ok.

BEWARE of any "church" that contains either God or Christ in their name. They are virtually ALL false teachers

Imagine that

Cluny, this is a good enough blog for me to answer the names you gave as people famous from the E. Orthodox Church.
First, I never heard of any of those names and I believe no one else has. They were people who received sainthood from your church. I know of hundreds who receive sainthood from God who have died already that not many know either.

When I answered you, I was speaking of important man in history who changed history. People like,
Martin Luther
John Calvin
Johannes Hus
Tomas Cranmer
John Knox
Philip Melanchthon
John Wycliffe
William Tyndale
Huldrych Zwingli
Juston Jonas
William Farel
Theodore Beza
Martin Bucer
to name but a few.

flew to texas today and met a black lady who was telling me what the prophet told her for the past 20 yrs. she kept referring to the prophet and told me she was one of the few who had decerning spirit. she said she has a gift of healing but she has a mess load of illnesses. she even told me the prophet said a black man would be president in 2008 and the country would try to undermine everything he does. she ask me where I went to church and I told her I was Baptist and she jumped in and said "I don't believe in denominations because the prophet told her it was wrong" I can't really believe people believe that.

Actually, there are three denominations called Churches of God. Churches of God Findlay Ohio, which was started by John Winebrenner out of German Reform roots. Churches of God Anderson, Indiana which actually came out of the Findlay Ohio denomination. Then there is the Cleveland Tennessee Churches of God that is the pentecostal denomination that you are thinking.
---Mark on 5/21/13

Some Churches Of God are oneness faith, and others are trinitarian. In history there was a meeting of Christian churches, and the outcome of the meeting was a division of two groups of Christians: One group comprehended 3 separate Gods is God, and the other group comprehended 1 God is God.

I myself hold fast to the oneness faith of 1 God is God.

actually, there are two denominational church of god one headquartered in anderson In. A holiness church. The other headquartered in Cleveland,Tenn. a pentacostal church
---michael_e on 2/8/10

There is also the First Church of God which is not pentecostal. I don't know, but my grandmother told me that there were two churches with two worship styles and both called themselves the Church of God. There was a lawsuit and the non-pentecostal Church of God was legally proven to have been established before the pentecostal Church of God so they took the name First Church of God and the pentecostal version took the name Church of God. Ultimately, I agree with other posts in that there is only one church and only one head of the isn't Pat Robertson, T.D. Jakes, or the Pope, but our lord and saviour Jesus Christ.
---Cody on 2/8/10

Actually there are two kinds of Church of God, churches. There is the "Church of God in Christ" and"Church of God , Cleveland Tennessee. There are many differences in the governing of the two churches.It is the cleveland Tennessee church that is Pentecostal and considers itself a Holiness church. I attended this type of church for 12 years and There is little difference in that church and a pentecostal church which I also have attended for several years.
---Pam on 2/7/10

Yes, they are similar to the Assemblies of God. The Church of God was established before the Assemblies of God, and there are little differences between the two. You can look up their beliefs on line at: www dot churchofgod dot org/about/declaration_of_faith dot cfm
And AOG: ag dot org/top/Beliefs/Statement_of_Fundamental_Truths/sft_short dot cfm
These basically are both trintarian theologies, whereas the Apostolic Pentecostal Faith is Oneness theology in the Godhead. And you can read about the Oneness beliefs at:

Yes to me to realize that God has Only 1 Church which Is according to Acts 2 v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt,28 v's 19-20, Gal.1 v's 8-9. Fear ye not little flock for you are the fathers good pleasure & it's pathtic to realize that othes are blind to see because they've Not been inlightened to see.

The devil believes in 1 God & trembles & he has people believing in a 2-3 god's or persons in g-head ideas even salvation plans, he has Many Big Flocks All Man-mades. From the trin-relig-org's chuches to the buddha, muslam, hindu's god's etc, All from here,2nd or.11 v's 14-14. Freedom of religion is Not scriptural,But,God does give people a choice.
---Lawrence on 2/7/10

Lawrence - it is pathetic that you are unable to recognize the fact that the church is essentially that body of believers in whom the Holy Spirit indwells.

Romans 8:9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.

Of course the flesh - those who boast of their wonderful religion - truly love love religion as it gives them a means of measuring themselves against others.
---Lee1538 on 2/6/10

A Man-made church has derived from here, 2nd Cor.11 v's 14-15-decieving light & satans ministers, Including the muslams god allah,buddha etc (All family body of Man-made relig-or's churches.) In other words, Not God inspired. Such Good people but spiritually darkend.
The Man-made relig-org's chuches,Matt.15v9,
2nd Cor.4v4,John 10v1,Matt.22 v's 11-13 the man here represents All the Man-made relig-org's churches.
Acts 2 v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19-20,Gal.1 v's 8-9 IS The wedding garment that God provides for the marriage supper, His saints.

//The Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee) is pentecostal.

And that is down where they handle all those poisonous snakes, correct?

Some people simply interpret the Bible literally as it states and refuse to mix good sense with their interpretations.

The aog,the cog(type of pentecost)are Man-made tin-churches. They'r offsprings from the mother apostate r-catholocsm just like the naz,presby,luth,bapt etc. Which came from here 2nd Cor.11 v's 14-15 ends up here,Rev 17 v's 4-6,with the other Man-mades,the muslam's allah,buddha etc.
---Lawrence on 2/5/10

What is a "man made tin-church"?

I am a member of a COG and we have absolutely nothing to do with muslims, allah, buddah, etc. Get your facts straight before you blow your mouth off. Perhaps you should not post at all.

In fact, our church loves Jews and hosts a Messianic congregation on the same property on Saturdays.

And so you must view the Sabbaterians churches in much the same way as they came out of several Protestant churches.

However, it is easy to see that such are true apostate churches since they are Hagarite in practice. See Galatians 4.24f.

The UPC & other Jesus Name Churches,recieved The Lord's Salvation Plan which Is according to Mark 16 v 16,Acts 2 v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt. 28 v's 19-20,Gal. 1 v's 8-9. This was delivered to the Jewish people First on the day of Pentecost by by Apostle Peter, Apostle Paul btought This Very Same to us gentiles later. The devil has gotton the trin-leaders denying this. Aft the rapture takes place, they sure wont deny it long,then it'l be to late for them.
---Lawrence on 2/5/10

The "United Pentecostal" church is a different league. They are a cult church. They are a "Jesus only" church and preach to other Christians that they are not saved if they believe in what they refer to as "3 Gods" (they exclude the Father and Spirit). While the women must not cut their hair or wear make up or slacks, they spend a great deal of mirror time on elaborate hair does:) They are required to ask their pastor's permission to engage in any activity not associated with their church. They are also convinced that one is unsaved if they do not speak in tongues. They are not allowed close friendships outside of their church. Men must shave and have cut hair and there are many more rules.

I have been a member of the Church of God for 42 years. believe me from the first time I entered the doors of the church I knew it was Pentecostal and I was not raised in any church.The power of God let me know what I had found. Open your eyes and your heart He will reveal Himself to you

Not all CHOG are pentecostal, those affiliated with Anderson, Indiana are not, which my home churh is affiliated with.
Also, I found the wording on 3 of the Bible quizs somewhat misleading. Numbers 5,7, & 17. Joseph

The church of God does not have any kind of denomination becasue God is one, and his church is one.
---Jose on 4/15/07

the church of God as Rev 12:17 says; And the dragon was wroth with the woman/church, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed/saints which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Do we all keep the 10 commandments?

I am a Church of God Minister, out of Cleveland, TN. We are Pentecostal. But there are Church of God, churches that are not pentecostal. You would need to find out as someone else said, where the headquarters is located.
---Rev._Keith on 8/15/05

The Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee) is pentecostal. There are several denominations which use the name Church of God in their title. If you attended a church and didn't notice that it was pentecostal right away, it would be a sure sign that maybe it wasn't as much on fire as most Church of Gods I've been to. Find out where the headquarters of that denomination are and research it online.
---Sally on 8/5/05

"Pentecostal" depends on what country you live in. In Canada, Pentecostal is a denomination, as well as an experience. In U.S., the sister denomination is called "Assemblies of God". I don't know about other countries, but there may be others that use pentecostal as a denomination, as well.

"Pentecostal" just refers to those that believe in the pentecost experience, not a denomination. WE believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit today the same as on the original day of Pentecost. Yes, Church of God believes in it. There are several brances to Church of God, originating out of different places but their beliefs seem pretty much the same. All pentecostals are definitely not United Pentecostal, which would be good if not for the extreme judgementalism.
