“But you have come to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem … to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven.”
In 1964, Christ Ahnsahnghong founded the Church of God, restoring all the teachings of the Early Church for nearly two thousand years. Just as the Early Church did, the Church of God observes the seven feasts of God, including the New Covenant Passover, which Jesus Christ established the night before His crucifixion. The Church of God also commemorates the Sabbath day on Saturday, as denoted in the Ten Commandments.
Since its establishment in South Korea, the Church of God has spread to more than 7,000 locations in 175 countries. And there are currently 2.7 registered members throughout the world. In Washington, D.C., the Church of God is located on Capitol Hill and is a landmark in the community. The Church hosts numerous Bible education events and participates in a variety of volunteer activities, including disaster relief efforts, environmental protection projects, and smile campaigns.
For its continued devotion to serving its communities, the Church of God has received numerous awards from around the world. The Church of God in the United States has received the President’s Call to Service Award three times. In the United Kingdom, in 2016, the Church of God received the top award given to organizations for its volunteerism—the Queen’s Voluntary Service Award—awarded by Queen Elizabeth II herself. Through this award, the Church became Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. As such, the Church of God holds the title of MBE, which is recognized by 52 members of the Commonwealth of Nations, including Canada, Australia, India, and Singapore.
In Washington, D.C., the Church of God has been named the Best House of Worship by the Washington City Paper in 2013, 2015, and 2016.
