We receved this email (6 Mar 2001) from Daniel Smead, Technical Director of Publishing, Atlanta Bible College/Church of God General Conference: Morrow, Georgia: "I discovered that the only link provided on your site to our church organization is one from a group of churches which is apparently disgruntled with us over events that took place in 1911 (ten years before our church organization actually was founded). Their site is not really accurate about us, although for all I know personally it may be accurate about what happened in 1911. But I thought that researchers might find our own site more illuminating about our history. " "Under the leadership of the Ministerial Association, the majority formed a new congregation in Oregon, Illinois called the Church of God General Conference. Many of the individual churches still call themselves 'Church of God of the Abrahamic Faith.' ... Today the General Conference has over 200 churches across the nation. The conference headquarters recently moved from Oregon, Illinois to Atlanta. "

The churches affiliated with the corporate headquarters elect delegates to attend an annual General Conference meeting. Denominational business is conducted, but the direction comes from the local churches, not from the headquarters. In the seventy years of its existence, the denomination has maintained a small Bible college, published literature for worldwide distribution, maintained an active youth program, engaged in foreign missions, and participated in the Church-growth movement. With the move of its headquarters to the more promising Atlanta area and the creation of a new theological journal, the Church of God seeks to make its heritage more widely known. "
