New to the Church of God family?  We suggest you start here  


Welcome to Church of God
 Research Center


     This website has been designed to assist you in understanding the gospel of Jesus Christ.  He taught the true gospel – the gospel of the Kingdom of God. This gospel, taught by Jesus Christ, is a message about God’s purpose for creating the human race in the first place - that of expanding His family and making it possible for mankind to inherit eternal life as a member of that family. Salvation is a personal issue, between a man or woman and God (Philippians 2:12).

     Through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we can understand the Scriptures (1Corinthians 2:10-16). And as the Bible is the Word of God in print, we hear what it has to say about God's Church.  Jesus continues to build His Church (Matthew 16:18), as the Temple of the Lord is not yet complete. In the New Testament, His church is named, "Church of God" for it is a spiritual organism and not an organization of men.  It is the Body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the Head. Therefore, we are all instructed to grow into the grace and knowledge of our Savior – Jesus Christ (2Peter3:18).  Please use this website to “put on Christ”.

God's Love of Covenant
- Sermon Series

      Guest Speaker: Steven LeBlanc of COG-eim
"A covenant is a sacred agreement between God and a person or group of people. God sets specific conditions, and He promises to bless us as we obey those conditions. When we choose not to keep covenants, we cannot receive the blessings, and in some instances we suffer a penalty as a consequence of our disobedience."
