95yearsThe church in Bulgaria is celebrating the 95th anniversary of its Pentecostal movement in 2015. We were able to participate in this season of celebration and honoring heroes of the faith through a series of lectures and video broadcasts on various topics of Pentecostal history, doctrine and praxis. Additionally, in 2015 we were able to prepare and publish a Bulgarian Prayer New Testament and the Bulgarian translation of Ivan Voronaev’s biography we authored back in 2010. We are thankful to the Lord for this opportunity to minister to the Bulgarian congregation and are looking forward to the Azusa Revival anniversary in 2016.

125August 19th, 1886 eight people stepped forward and covenanted to “set together as the church of God.”

They committed to take the New Testament as their only rule of faith and practice.

They committed to “giving each other equal rights and privilege to read and interpret for yourselves as your conscience may dictate”

They expressed their desire to be “free from all man made creeds and traditions.”

Thus, there are four foundations in the Church of God: 1) Liberty 2) Biblical 3) Equality 4) Diversity

These eight people were: Richard Spurling, John Plemons, Polly Plemons, Barbara Spurling, Margaret Lauftus, Melinda Plemons, John Plemons Jr, and Adeline Lauftus
