Is PCG God’s true Church? Or is there spiritual abuse and financial exploitation awaiting as a result of one’s involvement? Is Gerald Flurry That Prophet?
“I sometimes feel real good when I’m called a cult. … I think, isn’t it nice that they think you’re not very nice?” (Gerald Flurry, 6-23-90 sermon)
Are you are reading the Philadelphia Trumpet and are thinking of joining PCG? Are you are a former member? If so, you will want to read our informative articles, testimonies and letters. These pages offer hope, support, understanding and freedom from a cultic system of bondage.

Note: Philadelphia Church of God and its authoritative offshoots teach a false God. Any articles on this section of ESN’s site 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 was originally entitled Mike’s Enlightenment Page and is a resource for information on the Philadelphia Church of God.
