Philadelphia Church of God

Philadelphia Church of God

The Philadelphia Church of God (PCG) regards itself as an international Christian denomination and is based in Edmond, Oklahoma. The Philadelphia Church of God was founded by Gerald Flurry and John Amos (1929-1993) and incorporated in the United States on December 20, 1989.

This group traces its roots to the Worldwide Church of God, a split from the Church of God (Seventh-Day), founded by Herbert W. Armstrong. It was founded by former Worldwide Church of God ministers to continue Armstrong's teachings, which were repudiated by the Worldwide Church of God after its founder's death in 1986. [ [ The Philadelphia Church of God] (Watchman Fellowship profile, by Tim Martin)]

The PCG sponsors a weekly television program, "The Key of David", hosted by Gerald Flurry. The "Philadelphia Trumpet" is the church's monthly news magazine.

The PCG administers a small liberal arts and theology college, Herbert W. Armstrong College, located in Edmond. The college was established in 2001 as "Imperial College of Edmond," but was renamed after objections by Imperial College London. [ [ Imperial College of Edmond Changes Name] , Herbert W. Armstrong College news, December 5, 2005] Armstrong College graduated its first class in 2006 and was granted permission to accept international students in 2003.

PYC is the youth camp of PCG. PYC campers participate in athletic activities during the three week event, encouraging teamwork and cooperation. However, the main focus of the event is to educate the campers about the fundamental doctrines of the PCG. PYC is located in Edmond, Oklahoma, but PYC camps are also held annually in Australia and the Philippines.

PCG holds to the majority of Herbert W. Armstrong's teachings. It is the only significant group which does so and claims to be the only Church of God group being led by God.
