Behind the Work

Hosted by Grant Turgeon

God’s Work today is backed by a spiritual family of approximately 5,000 Philadelphia Church of God members and many more thousands of co-workers. The primary focus of a true Christian’s life is to contribute to the Work in any way possible, in the process preparing to teach the entire world in the near future. Tune in each Monday at 12 p.m. Central time for a behind-the-scenes look at the vibrant and exciting Work of the living God through interviews, feature stories, updates and statistical rundowns. With the help of the Autobiography of Herbert W. Armstrong, you will also learn how the Work of God today relates to the spectacular, miraculous, five-decade work of the end-time Elijah.

The late educator and theologian Herbert W. Armstrong’s successful business had suddenly collapsed—for the second time. To make things worse, his wife challenged him on the Sabbath, and a relative ridiculed him for not believing in evolution. Unlike most of us, Mr. Armstrong was actually willing to extensively prove all things—even if that meant 18-hour days of study for six months straight. To this day, we benefit from his passion for proving and teaching God’s truth.
