What is the Church of God? Does the church have a vital message and a reason for existence?
While there is no set of written doctrines or a creedal statement, there is a cluster of doctrines (all of them biblical and all of them historically accurate) that has been emphasized in the religious movement known as the Church of God. None of these doctrines is unique to the Church of God; yet, the particular combination of teachings makes the Church of God's approach to doctrines distinctive and significant.
In I Will Build My Church, Dr. John Smith traces how Church of God teachings have developed and changed over the first 125 years.
