  • Q. How did you get the name “Church of God of Prophecy?

    The General Assembly of 1907 officially adopted the name Church of God. During the years that followed he disruption within the Church in 1923, much controversy ensued over which group had the legal right to that name. Several protracted, legal proceedings failed to resolve the issue satisfactorily. For several years, we used the name, “Church of God, over which A.J. Tomlinson is General Overseer,” but that did not fully settle the matter. Finally, in 1952, the issue was decided in the Chancery Court of Bradley County, Tennessee, when the judge decreed that the suffix “of Prophecy” be added to our name for use only in secular and business affairs to distinguish our organisation from other organisations with similar names. We agreed to the ruling, in order to be in legal compliance, ad we continue to use the name in conducting our external affairs. For internal affairs, government, and worship we normally use our original name, Church of God.

  • Do you consider membership in the Church of God of Prophecy necessary to salvation?

    No. Salvation comes only by grace through faith in the work of Jesus Christ on the cross. Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.” Membership in the Church of God of Prophecy is extended to those who have already experienced salvation, but becoming a member of the church will not save an individual.

  • What is represented in the church logo?

    The logo is not a replacement of the church flag, but is an additional image that helps identify our church through digital and print media. As with the church flag, all the aspects of the church logo represent Jesus and our mission as His followers—The Cross and the World, The Church of God of Prophecy is commissioned by the Lord to preach the message of the cross to the entire world; The Red Flame, The message of Christ is to be preached under the anointing of the Holy Ghost fire, letting the people know there is power in the blood; The Blue in the Flame, the truth of God’s Word; The Gold Scepter, Star and Crown, We declare boldly to the world that Jesus is total power and authority; that He is our bright and morning Star; that He is our King of Kings; The White, the blood of Christ washes us white as snow; The Purple, This represents the kingship, royalty and authority of Christ.

  • The Local Level

    Not only are biblical truths such as repentance, regeneration, sanctification and holiness of life preached, but they are lived out in local churches around the world. The local level is the heartbeat of the church, providing caring congregations in the thousands of cities, towns, and communities around the world where the church’s mission is carried out on a daily basis. These local bodies of believers form the framework within which the church meets its objectives of worship, evangelization, equipping believers, and preparation for Christ’s return.

    Local churches are led by a qualified licensed pastor, appointed by the respective overseer who works in cooperation with the local body. The pastor serves as the spiritual and administrative leader of his congregation, and seeks God’s direction for shepherding the flock.

  • State/Region Level

    The national / regional / state level provides more focused leadership and support directly within the context of the nations, regions, and states where the church is at work.

  • International Level

    The international level of the church organisation functions on a worldwide basis and provides a global network of support and interaction for the church’s ministries in all 50 United States and 128 other nations.

  • Membership

    The Church of God of Prophecy holds the biblical principle of genuine repentance toward God (an individual’s experience of salvation) as its qualification for Church membership in accordance with the early church’s practice and God’s own activity in adding to the church daily those who were being saved (Acts 2:41, 47; 1 Corinthians 12:13). By genuine repentance is meant Godly sorrow for sin, confessing, turning from, denouncing and forsaking sin, and exercising faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ “who was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification” (Romans 4:25). “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9, 10). Salvation is both instantaneous (new birth, regeneration) and the all inclusive work of redemption, beginning with regeneration and culminating with the glorified body (Hebrews 9:28). In terms of “being added to the church,” the instantaneous aspect of salvation is evident, and a public commitment (“I will/I do”) to the Church covenant as administered by an authorized Church of God of Prophecy minister, in an appropriate church setting, is necessary. The covenant reads:

    Will you sincerely promise in the presence of God and these witnesses that you will accept this Bible as the Word of God, believe and practice its teachings rightly divided—the New Testament as your rule of faith, practice, government, and discipline, and walk in the light to the best of your knowledge and ability?

    Membership in the Church denotes acceptance, which is the basic need of every new believer. Ministry leadership and the Church must endeavor to give members this sense of belonging. The Church also advocates that new members be immediately placed in an effective, ongoing, discipleship process by the pastor and local church (Acts 2:42), a process that includes nurturing and discipline, to help them become mature (2 Peter 3:18), discover the spiritual gift or gifts, which will be exercised through them for the edification of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians, chapters 12, 13, 14), and to learn to make disciples of others (Matthew 28:19, 20). As we continue in the harvest, a program of extensive discipleship requiring great wisdom and loving care by leadership and people will help all our members mature in Christ.
