Approximately 2,200 affiliated congregations across the United States and Canada collectively make up the Church of God reformation movement in North America.

Reflecting its strong non-denominational policy, each congregation represents the basic organizational unit of the Church of God. Each church calls its own pastors and establishes its own internal organizational patterns and bylaws.

Congregations are not controlled by any person or organization outside their own membership. In fact, state, regional, and national organizations derive their strength from local churches and receive any voluntary support these congregations choose to give.

Most churches recognize, however, that "we do better together." For that reason, they commonly form interdependent partnerships with area, national, and international ministries.

Historically, the Church of God has held firmly to several important doctrinal distinctives that create a sense of interdependency.

  1. The reality of experiential salvation
  2. The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ
  3. The Spirit-filled life of holiness
  4. The authority of Scripture
