We are referred to as the Church of God of Anderson, Indiana, where our international headquarters are located.
DS Warner and a number of other Christian leaders wanted to have a church that was not bound by rigid denominational rules and regulations and one that more clearly reflected the New Testament church with its message of unity and holiness – a church that would encompass all born again believers, regardless of denominational tags. Thus the Church of God has no written “membership rules.” If you believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior, you are a member of Cloverdale Church of God.
The Church of God is considered a member of the “holiness movement.” Similar churches that identify themselves as a part of the “holiness movement” include the Quakers (Friends), the Nazarene Church, the Free Methodist Church, and the Evangelical Church of North America.
Cloverdale is made up of people from all backgrounds who have come together for one purpose – to Worship the Lord and grow in our walk with Him. In fact, less than 5% of the Cloverdale come from a Church of God background.
