Brief History:

CBCG was founded in 1983 by Fred R. Coulter and is located in Hollister, California. His website carries the name: Truth of God–Restoring Original Christianity–For Today! or Truth of God–Biblical Church of God. 

False Gospel:

Couler claims that CBCG is “dedicated to teaching the truth.” However, CBCG’s “truth” is nothing but the dogma and belief system of Herbert W. Armstrong, a false prophet who gave over 200 false prophecies/ (Read: Did Herbert Armstrong Set Dates?).

Read: Herbert Armstrong: Mr. Confusion for a review of his doctrines.

HWA is known to have copied and plagiarized from Jehovah’s Witnesses, 7th-day Adventism, Mormonism, and Church of God (7th Day).

Fred Coulter has many booklets and audios on his site based on the false teachings of Herbert Armstrong, including HWA’s book Mystery of the Ages which was the culmination of all his teachings. (See ESN’s chapter by chapter critical reviews of Mystery of the Ages, available as PDF downloads).


CBCG’s is merely one of hundreds of offshoots from the Worldwide Church of God, founded by Herbert W. Armstrong, and known for decades as a Bible-based cult. teaching a false gospel.

This is the “restored Christianity” Fred R. Coulter is talking about. Beware that you are not deceived and end up being exploited financially through his tithing system, along with mandated holy day offerings!

Fred Coulter has also written his own translation of the Bible (read more about this in the first testimony below).

Much more about Coulter can be found in the testimonies, letters and articles listed below.
