The Living Church of God is a new organization with an old history. The Presiding Evangelist, Dr. Roderick C. Meredith, was one of the original evangelists ordained by the late Herbert W. Armstrong in December 1952. For more than half a century, Dr. Meredith has powerfully proclaimed the truth of God to millions through his hundreds of articles and booklets. He has conducted personal evangelistic campaigns throughout the United States, Canada, and the British Isles. Additionally, he has broadcast over radio and television to the whole English-speaking world.
The Living Church of God is active in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australasia. It has scores of ordained ministers and more than two hundred congregations. In addition to broadcasts by Dr. Meredith and fellow evangelist Richard Ames along with Rod King and Wallace Smith in the English language, the Church sponsors broadcasts in French with evangelist Dibar Apartian, and in Spanish with Mario Hernandez. Church members today view themselves as the spiritual heirs of the original Jerusalem Church of New Testament time.
