Philadelphia Church of God Beliefs

We sum up our beliefs by the motto: Living by every word. Jesus Christ said, “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). Most Christians claim the same motto, but don’t actually believe the words Christ spoke, as recorded in the Bible.

We do. All of our beliefs come straight from the Bible, and we don’t treat the Old Testament any different from the New. These are controversial and explosive statements, we know, but it is what we believe. If you want to get an in-depth study of what the Bible teaches, and what we believe, enroll in our free Bible correspondence course.

If you would prefer something more immediate, you can get a good look at our beliefs just by reading what we post to our Bible section.

If you want a summary, we’ve provided two for you here, one on our general beliefs and one on our general doctrines.
