Christian belief systems: Anglo-Israelism

The Worldwide Church of God,
and various splinter groups

Sponsored link.


Overview:

The Worldwide Church of God (WCG) was organized by Herbert W. Armstrong in 1933. It was noted for:

bulletIts practice of meeting on Saturdays,
 
bulletIts belief in Anglo/British Israelism -- that the British (and by extension Americans, Canadians, Australians, etc.) are the spiritual and literal descendants of the ancient Israelites.
 
bulletIts extensive and effective use of radio and later of television.

After Armstrong's death Many in the WCG left the church and joined or formed numerous splinter groups. The WCG continues today as Grace Communion International. It has made the difficult transition from a church of radical teachings to become a regular evangelical denomination.

Topics covered in this section:

bulletHistory of the WCG. Splinter groups.
 
bulletOriginal and revised beliefs & practices.
 
bulletThe WCG and homosexuality.
