Untitled[edit]

I am moving The Church of God of All Nations here, because The Church of God (Jerusalem Acres) appears to be more official. The church itself considers its name to be The Church of God. - Rlvaughn 16:48, 1 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Membership Claims[edit]

I would suggest that the group may CLAIM 30,000 members in the U.S. and Canada, but that the operative word is "claim". I doubt that its average-sized congregation is 1,000, which is what this would entail; I've seen several of their buildings and I would guess that that they would tend to have claimed membership around 100 in the typical congregation and worship attendance of typically 60 or 70; the 30,000 members may be more of a worldwide number than North American. It seems to me highly unlikely that the church would actually claim for itself numbers that would seem to be patently false, and I would very seriously doubt that there is any one congregation of 1,000 adherents of this group anywhere in North America. This is not meant as a putdown, very few small denominations have large, 1,000 member congregations; churches of that size tend to be either officially affiliated with a known major denomination or to be nondemominational. Also, I've seen "Jerusalem Acres" and if this is the headquarters of a 30,000 member group, then they have very little regard for, and very little per capita investment in, their headquarters, and this would certainly make them most atypical Pentecostals.

Removed category flag because this is a denomination, which is not to be included in the category. One Salient Oversight 07:23, 31 Oct 2004 (UTC)
