About Us

“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.”

The World Mission Society Church of God is a Christian non-denominational church. Its teachings come directly from the Bible and are the same as the Early Church that Jesus Christ established.

Founded in 1964 by Christ Ahnsahnghong, the Church of God has been established in 7,000 locations in 175 countries with more than 2.7 million members. In Virginia, the Church of God is located in Newport News.

As a church that follows the teachings of the Early Church, the Church of God observes the seven annual feasts of God, including the New Covenant Passover. It also observes the Sabbath day on Saturday.

The members of the Church of God in Newport News diligently study the Scriptures to gain deeper understanding of the teachings of God. They also host numerous Bible seminars and group studies to share God’s word with the community.

When they’re not studying the Bible, members are looking for ways to put Christ’s teachings into practice by carrying out numerous volunteer activities in Virginia—from food drives to environmental protection activities.

For its dedication to its community, the Church of God has received numerous awards from heads of state and prestigious organizations. In the United States, the Church of God received the President’s Call to Service Award three times. In the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth II presented the Church of God with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service—the top award in the U.K. for organizations devoted to serving their community.

In Virginia, the Church of God will continue to deliver the words of God to the community and those interested in following the teachings of Jesus Christ.
