About Us

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” 
- Mark 16:15

The Living Church of God proclaims to the world the good news of Jesus Christ’s coming Kingdom (Matthew 24:14; Mark 16:15), and blows a bold “warning trumpet” of God’s impending judgment, calling for repentance and spiritual change (Matthew 24:21; Isaiah 58:1; Ezekiel 33). We strive to practice original Christianity as taught and practiced by Jesus Christ and the original Apostles, including observance of the seventh-day Sabbath and annual Holy Days in the Bible. Church members view themselves as the spiritual heirs of the original Jerusalem Church of the first century.

We produce the award-winning weekly Tomorrow's World telecast, sounding this warning trumpet to hundreds of millions of homes around the world. Along with English-language broadcasts (by Gerald Weston and fellow evangelists Richard Ames, Wallace Smith, and Rod McNair), similar programs are produced in French and Spanish under the direction of evangelist Mario Hernández. The telecast also airs in Russian, German, and other languages in translation on satellites across the globe, and is available via cable and the Internet.

The Church also publishes the Tomorrow’s World magazine—a full-color magazine sent to more than 500,000 subscribers—containing articles on Bible prophecy, current events, and Christian living. Our Tomorrow’s World Presentations invite subscribers to exciting seminars on biblical and prophetic subjects in cities around the world.

The Living Church of God is active in North and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australasia. We have more than 250 ministers serving over 400 congregations around the globe.

Dr. Roderick C. Meredith served as the first Presiding Evangelist for the Living Church of God. He was one of the original evangelists ordained by the late Herbert W. Armstrong in December 1952. For more than 64 years, Dr. Meredith powerfully proclaimed the truth of God to millions through his hundreds of television programs, booklets, magazine articles, and personal evangelistic campaigns throughout the United States, Canada, and the British Isles. In 2016, after consultation with the Council of Elders, Dr. Meredith appointed evangelist Gerald Weston as his successor and as president of the Living Church of God.

Mr. Weston was ordained a minister of Jesus Christ in 1971 and has served congregations throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. He has been a frequent writer for the Church’s publications, has trained many ministers over the years, and has been a longtime member of the Church’s Council of Elders. Upon Dr. Meredith’s death in May 2017, Mr. Weston became the Presiding Evangelist of the Living Church of God, and with the support of many faithful brethren and ministers, he continues in Jesus Christ’s command to preach the good news of the coming Kingdom of God and to blow the warning trumpet of repentance and spiritual change to people all around the world, so that many may be moved and convicted by the word of God.
