The Philadelphia Church of God (PCG) is an international church based in Edmond, Oklahoma. PCG traces its roots to the Worldwide Church of God (WCG) founded by Herbert W. Armstrong and teaches a "new revelation" which its founder, Gerald Flurry, says God has shown to him from the Bible since Armstrong's death. It was founded with the stated purpose to continue Armstrong's teachings, which were repudiated by WCG after its founder's death in 1986, as it embraced Christian beliefs like the Trinity that had formerly been rejected.
PCG, as one of the Sabbatarian Churches of God (COG), states that it is attempting to carrying on Armstrong's legacy after the doctrinal changes made by new WCG leaders Joseph W. Tkach and his son Joseph Tkach Jr.
Famous quotes containing the word flurry:
“... whats been building since the 1980s is a new kind of social Darwinism that blames poverty and crime and the crisis of our youth on a breakdown of the family. Thats what will last after this flurry on family values.”
—Stephanie Coontz (b. 1944)
