"The distinction between the General Conference and the six COGAF congregations cited in the opening paragraph cannot be over emphasized. The existence of the two groups has created much confusion for Christadelphians trying to identify and evaluate the COGAF. Because the General Conference is a large organization, many Christadelphians have come into contact with their church members. Once contact is made, Christadelphians naturally recoil at some of the doctrines they uncover. So do we! There is no fellowship between the General Conference and the COGAF. "

"The Church of God with Signs Following is a name applied to an informally organized group of Pentecostal churches, ministers, and itinerant evangelists popularly known as snake-handlers, who are distinguished by their practice of drinking poison (usually strychnine) and handling poisonous serpents during their worship services. Among those who handle snakes and drink poison, the actions are called 'preaching the signs.' The terms 'signs' refers to Jesus' remarks in Mark 16:17-18... Congregatoins of signs people can be found from central Florida to West Virginia and as far west as Columbus, Ohio. Each church is independent (and a variety of names are used, mostly variations on the Church of God). They are tied together by evangelists who move from one congregation to the next. They produce no literature. Membership: Observers of the snake handlers estimate between 50 to 100 congregations and as many as several thousand adherents. "
