Dear Friend,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our Web site. This is the official site of the Church of God, which meets at 74 Armstrong Road in Summersville, West Virginia.

The Church of God is a non-sectarian, non-denominational, non-pentecostal body established by Christ in A.D. 33. Jesus proclaimed, "I will build my church" (Matthew 16:18). This divine declaration reveals several truths:

  • The true, biblical church is a divine property.
  • The true, biblical church was of divine institution.
  • The true, biblical church is singular.

According to the words of the Apostle Paul, this church was established, or "purchased with his [Christ's] own blood" (Acts 20:28), in A.D. 33 and designated as "the church of God."

The Scriptures plainly teach:

  • Salvation from all sin (Matthew 1:21)
  • The necessity of a life of holiness (Luke 1:74-75; Titus 2:11-12)
  • God, not man, inducts one into the glorious church (Psalm 87:5; 1 Corinthians 12:13 & 18)

This is the reason that our tag line states, ". . . where salvation makes you a member."

It has never been the Lord's desire that His people be divided into sectarian bodies. Jesus prayed "that they may be one" (John 17:22), and He said, "I kept them in thy [God's] name" (John 17:12). Therefore, the church is named the Church of God. A vital part of the message that God's church heralds in this day is the call to "Come out of her, my people" (Revelation 18:4). The Lord is setting His hand and calling His people out of man-made religious institutions and bringing them back to Zion, the Bible church (Hebrews 12:22-23).

In many localities,the teachings and traditions of men have obscured the truth of God’s Word. Here at the Church of God in Summersville, WV, the Bible is our rule of faith and we subscribe to the whole counsel of God. This site is designed to acquaint you with some basic Bible truths. For that reason, we have designed this site with some helpful features that will provide you with understanding and knowledge of the basic truths found in God’s Word. In addition to the basic Bible truths are special study publications that you may view online or download for your own personal use. It is our desire that "all men ... be saved, and come unto the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:4).

My friend, if you are not saved, it is our burden that we might be the means to encourage you to gain this experience. If you are saved, then it is our burden that you "come unto the knowledge of the truth," so you might gain that which is needful to live a victorious life and maintain your Christian experience.

I invite you to attend our weekly services to worship with us at the Church of God here in Summersville, WV.

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Earl R. Borders
