Church of God General Conference (Abrahamic Faith, McDonough, GA) (1921 - Present) - Religious GroupReligious Family: Adventist
Religious Tradition: Evangelical Protestant
Description: The Church of God General Conference (Abrahamic Faith) is the outgrowth of several independent local groups of similar faith, some in existence as early as 1800; others date their beginnings from the arrival of British immigrants to this country around 1847. These diverse groups shared in general Adventist theology. A national organization was instituted in 1888 and 1889; however, because of strong convictions relating to congregational rights and authority, the national body ceased to function until 1921, when the present general conference was formed at Waterloo, Iowa. In 1991, the group's headquarters and Bible college were moved to Morrow, Georgia, where they remained until 2009. At that point, their headquarters were moved again, this time to McDonough, Georgia.

2 All data on clergy, members, and churches are taken from the National Council of Churches’ Historic Archive CD and recent print editions of the Council’s Yearbook of American and Canadian Churches. The CD archives all 68 editions of the Yearbook (formerly called Yearbook of the Churches and Yearbook of American Churches) from 1916 to 2000. Read more information on the Historic Archive CD and the Yearbook.
Membership figures are "inclusive." According to the Yearbook, this includes "those who are full communicant or confirmed members plus other members baptized, non-confirmed or non-communicant." Each denomination has its own criteria for membership.
When a denomination listed on the Historic Archive CD was difficult to identify, particularly in early editions of the Yearbook, the ARDA staff consulted numerous sources, including Melton’s Encyclopedia of American Religions and the Handbook of Denominations in the United States. In some cases, ARDA staff consulted the denomination’s website or contacted its offices by phone. When a denomination could not be positively identified, its data were omitted.
