God names things as they are. This name is explicitly mentioned in both the singular and plural form in twelve different passages of the New Testament (cf. Acts 20:28; Corinthians 1:2; 10:32; 11:16; 1 Timothy 3:15).

The Living Church of God has members in many countries around the world who strive to accomplish the Great Commission given by Jesus Christ: To witness to all nations the true teaching of the Kingdom of God (Matthew 24:14; Mark 1:14; Ezekiel 3; 33) and the name of Jesus Christ (Acts 8:12), to meet the spiritual and physical needs of our members as God makes possible (John 21:15-18; 1 Peter 5:1–4), and to prophesy of the end times and warn the whole world, particularly English-speaking countries, of an impending great crisis (Matthew 24:21).

The Living Church of God traces its history from the first-century Church in the book of Acts. The prophetic message to the seven churches in Revelation 2–3 traces the history of God’s true Church from that time (the Ephesian era) to the present day. These seven letters describe the Church of God as it exists in seven ages, or eras. We believe that the Philadelphia era began in the 1930s and continues through us today.
