Churches Of God
Meridian, Idaho Board
Directors have the following vision for the organization, and it's members,
leading of the Lord.
feel that our goal and purpose is to support and promote the teaching and
instruction of the biblical word. We believe that through this, we follow
the direction set by our forefathers and early leaders of the Church Of God,
and the Holy Spirit. We place our support and backing to the ministers.
The Spreading of the gospel to all people, through evangelistic trips and
contacts, will be supported financially each year. To
further this we support the establishment and operation of the Maranatha
College for the development of the future ministers and leaders of the
churches. We believe that through this support and working with our
ministers, the publishing work, the Christian Youth organization, Daughters
of the King, and Camp Meeting, we meet the direction and leading of God.
Pray that the General Council
membership as a whole join us in support of the vision, as we look to God
and pray that
He continues to lead us in the direction of
His sovereign will.
