LCG Announces Baptisms and TV Responses


My wife, youngest son, and I having lunch with Dr. and Mrs. Meredith during the Feast of Tabernacles in 2005. Dr. Meredith is the Presiding Evangelist of the Living Church of God.

The following was in the latest Weekly Update from the Living Church of God:

Excerpts from a report prepared by Mr. Wayne Pyle for the Feast of Tabernacles: 

In the past 12 months, we have received 196,336 responses from our TV stations in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Caribbean, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  The total response is up by 8 percent over the previous year, which itself was up 30 percent!  More than 100,000 of the Tomorrow’s World respondents were brand new to the television program and the Living Church of God.   

A total of 442,654 booklets, reprints, lessons, audio CDs and other publications were sent to requesters around the world, which is 15 percent above the previous year. 

Since last year’s Feast of Tabernacles, a total of 409 new members have come with the Living Church of God, including 209 newly baptized members.  Some of these new members came from such far-flung countries as Botswana, Mauritius, Tanzania and Vanuatu—a total of 24 countries. 

Comments by COGwriter

Its always great to hear how effective this “little flock” we call LCG is in proclaiming the true gospel to the world as a witness.  With only 7,000 people in attendance, LCG does reach people all over the world–especially with nearly 3,800 contacting us each week because of the telecast.

And while not all will respond in the Church age, ultimately the work of God will result in all having an opportunity for salvation and nearly every one who ever lived be saved.

Several articles of related interest may include:

There are Many COGs: Why Support the Living Church of God? This is an article for those who wish to easily sort out the different COGs. It really should be a MUST READ for current and former WCG members or any interested in supporting the faithful church.

Hope of Salvation: How the COGs differ from most Protestants How the COGs differ from mainstream Protestants, is perhaps the question I am asked most by those without a COG background.

Sola Scriptura or Prima Luther? What Did Martin Luther Really Believe About the Bible? Though he is known for his public sola Scriptura teaching, Martin Luther’s writings about the Bible suggest he felt that prima Luther was his ultimate authority.

The Similarities and Dissimilarities between Martin Luther and Herbert W. Armstrong This article clearly shows some of the doctrinal differences between in the two. At this time of doctrinal variety and a tendency by many to accept certain aspects of Protestantism, the article should help clarify why the COG is NOT Protestant.

Universal Salvation? There Are Hundreds of Verses in the Bible Supporting the Doctrine of True Apocatastasis Do you believe what the Bible actually teaches on this? Does God’s plan of salvation take rebellion and spiritual blindness into account?
