COGWA announces its new school: Foundation Institute


The Church of God, a Worldwide Association (COGWA) announced that it has a new school which will begin in August 2012 called Foundation Institute, Center for Biblical Education.  Here is some of what it says about it:

The mission of Foundation Institute, Center for Biblical Education, is to teach the doctrines of the Holy Bible and Fundamental Beliefs of the Church of God, a Worldwide Association, and to impart understanding of God’s Word and how to apply the Scripture in order to live righteously and develop godly character…

Foundation Institute Center for Biblical Education is not accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and is not recognized by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the U.S. Department of Education, or any other state, agency or accrediting body as a licensed degree-granting institution.

This school is not unexpected as some of those associated with UCG’s Ambassador Bible Center went to COGWA.  (COGWA is basically a spin-off group from the United Church of God–most of UCG’s paid USA and Latin American ministry joined COGWA within the last 16 months.)

COGWA has thus far taken steps which I believe are consistent with those to be expected of leaders once in UCG.

Polycarp, Herbert W. Armstrong, and Roderick C. Meredith on Church Government What form of governance did the early church have? Was it hierarchical? Which form of governance would one expect to have in the Philadelphia remnant? The people decide and/or committee forms, odd dictatorships, or the same type that the Philadelphia era itself had?
Unity: Which COG for You? Why so many groups? Why is there lack of unity in the Churches of God? Has it always been this way? What can/should be done about it?
Differences between the Living Church of God and United Church of God This article provides quotes information from the two largest groups which had their origins in WCG as well as commentary.
There are Many COGs: Why Support the Living Church of God? This is an article for those who wish to more easily sort out the different COGs. It really should be a MUST READ for current and former WCG/GCI members or any interested in supporting the faithful church. It also explains a lot of what the COGs are all about.
Concerns about Church of God, a Worldwide Association This seems to be the largest group that came out of the United Church of God. Here is some history and concerns about it.
Should the Church Still Try to Place its Top Priority on Proclaiming the Gospel or Did Herbert W. Armstrong Change that Priority for the Work? Some say the Church should mainly feed the flock now as that is what Herbert W. Armstrong reportedly said. Is that what he said? Is that what the Bible says? What did Paul and Herbert W. Armstrong expect from evangelists?
The Laodicean Church Era has been predominant circa 1986 A.D. to present. These are non-Philadelphians who mainly descended from the old WCG.
