Crazy Statements by PCG Ministers


“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”
~Ephesians 5:11






Note: Philadelphia Church of God and its authoritative offshoots teach a false, cruel God. Any articles on this website that mention God are those that reveal a God whose love is everlasting, and who is full of mercy, grace and compassion, giving Himself freely to meet our deepest needs. He manifested His love to us by revealing Himself through His Son, Christ Jesus, who saves us eternally by His grace and not by any works that we might try to do. This website gives credit to the real Lord Jesus Christ for inspiring the contents therein. It would not be possible without Him.

This section of the Exit & Support Network™ website was created February 2000 for Mike who contacted ESN in 1998. Mike was active in ESN from 2000 to 2016.
It is a resource for information on the Philadelphia Church of God.
