Happy 127th birthday to #ourCOG
On August 19, 1886 a group of believers gathered in a millhouse on the banks of Barney Creek in Monroe County, Tennessee for a meeting. From that inauspicious beginning, the movement that became the Church of God was born. Eight willing vessels extended to one another the right hand of fellowship and formed the Christian Union. From then until now the thread of fellowship and pure faith remains unbroken. From our perspective looking back on their humble circumstances, it is hard for us to imagine that they could foresee a worldwide movement of over 7 million members in over 180 countries, but from where they were, that was just the kind of faith that moved them. Happy 127th birthday to the Church of God.
