Church of God, New World Ministries

Quarterly Letter - March 2015-May 2015

May 2015
 
Greetings Everyone,
 
If you will notice our letterhead, we are called The Church of God, New World Ministries. With a name like that we claim to be God’s Church. We do not claim to be the only branch of God’s Church but part of it. However, in researching information for this letter I found some astounding statistics. There are an estimated 37 million churches in the world with 50,000 new ones every year. Of these 37 million churches there are 34,000 plus denominations including 1,200 in the U.S. alone. And what is even more astounding is that no two are the same. There are a smorgasbord of beliefs from the Bible and other religions. People are so confused they do not know who or what to believe much less determine which is God’s True Church! And that is exactly the way Satan the Devil wants it—confusing (Rev. 12:9)!
 
So, those of you receiving this letter just read that we claim to be a part of God’s True Church. Are we telling you the truth or are we just one of the 37 million churches claiming to be The Church of God? Now, I do not have the space in this letter to explain fully why we are a part of God’s True Church but I am going to give you a means in which you can prove it.
 
First of all let’s turn to Matthew 16:18 and read what Christ said about the formation of His Church. “I will build my church, and the gates of Hades (hell) will not prevail against it…” The Greek word for church is “ekklesia” which means congregation or assembly. Christ said in Matthew 7:21, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” Since Christ is building the Church and it is His Church certainly He has the prerogative to set the guidelines for His Church. Those guidelines must be based on Christ’s teachings. This is where most of the world’s churches go astray. They do not do “the will of the Father.” Satan the Devil has deceived them into believing his ministers (II Cor. 11:3-4;10-15) who have taught another Jesus and another gospel. God’s True Church will be doing “the will of the Father”!
 
Let’s ask a very poignant question here. Why did Christ form a Church in the first place? Why did He want to build a Church? Was it to teach us how to be good, have peace on earth and goodwill toward men? To have happy lives here on earth and one day when we die, go to heaven? If that is the case, He is failing miserably! The churches of this world are simply not meeting those goals! The truth is Jesus is building His Church for a completely different reason. This reason too has been hidden from the churches of this world by Satan’s deceptions.
 
The key to understanding why Christ is building His Church is found in one of the seven annual Holy Days found in Leviticus chapter 23:15-21—Pentecost. Since most of this world’s churches churches have taught that these annual Holy Days have been “done away with” they have lost sight of “the Day of Pentecost’s” true meaning. I do not have the space here to explain the meaning of this annual Holy Day but I will go into detail in my DVD prepared especially for Pentecost. This DVD will be available upon request. Hosts of the Church of God New World Ministries will receive it automatically. If you are presently attending one of the world’s 37 million churches you may want to request this DVD to learn the truth about the correlation between Pentecost and God’s True Church.
 
By now you must know that the Church of God New World Ministries observes the 7th day Sabbath and all seven of the Annual Holy Days listed in Leviticus 23. God commands the observance of these Sabbaths. The next Holy Day to be observed is the Day of Pentecost. We will be observing the weekly Sabbath and the Day of Pentecost May 23rd and 24th, 2015 at the Hampton Inn, London Ky. The Hampton Inn is located off I-75, exit 41. Services will begin at 12:00 noon.
 
I also want to announce that The Church of God New World Ministries will be observing the Feast of Tabernacles this year, 2015, in Lexington, KY. We will be meeting at the Clarion Hotel Lexington Conference Center, 5532 Athens Boonsboro Road; Lexington, KY 40509. The room rate is $79.99 plus tax. The telephone number is (859) 263-5241. There will be a reception September 27th at 7:30 PM at the Clarion Hotel. The first service for the Feast will begin at 10:30 AM September 28th, 2015.

My friends, the true gospel Christ proclaimed in Mark 1:14-15 is not being taught by the churches of this world. They are teaching a false gospel message about a false Jesus. Christ’s message proclaimed the soon coming Kingdom of God. Are you hearing that message in your church service? Do you even know what it is? You need to know. Enroll today in our Mini-Correspondence Course. Also enroll in our new series, God’s Master Plan of Salvation in which we explain the meaning of each of the seven annual Holy Days.
 
The Church of God New World Ministries would like to thank all of you who support this work of proclaiming the gospel of Christ to the world via your prayers and contributions. Without your support we simply could not do His work.
 
Sincerely,
George Trent
