Philadelphia Trumpet Circulation Flat


The Philadelphia Church of God recently produced the March 2008 edition of its Philadelphia Trumpet magazine.  And it, like other editions has the listed circulation.  Here is what the listed circulation for the March (sometimes a combined March-April issue) has been for the past several years:

  • 2004       344,530
  • 2005       315,435
  • 2006       326,702
  • 2007       295,000
  • 2008       294,000

The circulation trend could be most politely described as flat, and probably more accurately as in a mild decline.

While magazines were more of PCG’s focus earlier, it  appears to me at least that its building projects (here is one recent news item Philadelphia Church of God Announces “Armstrong Auditorium”) and probably the internet have become more of its focus.

FWIW, the Living Church of God is producing (as it has not mailed them out yet) 361,000 copies of the March 2008 issue of its Tomorrow’s World magazine.  The trend for LCG’s magazine is up as it has increased circulation in each of its ten years.

Teachings Unique to the Philadelphia Church of God Simply trying to calling oneself ‘Philadelphia’ or making buildings does not make one Philadelphian (see Revelation 3:7-9), nor does Gerald Flurry calling himself “that prophet” make it so. This article provides many quotes from this group which claims to be faithful.

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. It also explains a lot of what the COGs are all about.
