Welcome to COGWA
Fort Myers, FL
Why do you go to church?
Is it for the relationships, the programs, the music, the worship? Those are all reasonable reasons. But the most important reason to attend church is to hear the truth of God taught directly from the pages of His inspired word “The Holy Bible.” Within the pages of that book we are given the answers to life’s most important questions. Why was I born? What does God teach us in how we are to live in order to achieve success and peace in this life and beyond? What happens to us after we die? These are merely three of the life altering questions God answers if we are willing to listen.
Our congregation follows the practice of Jesus Christ and the New Testament Church by worshipping on the seventh day Sabbath (Saturday) and observing the seven annual Sabbaths or Holy Days. The weekly and annual Sabbaths were given in the Old Testament, but kept in the New Testament by the apostles and the Church. In observing these days we more fully appreciate Jesus Christ being the center of their prophetic meaning. They all point to the Kingdom of God in God’s master plan of salvation for mankind. If you would like to know more about us, I invite you to review our Fundamental Beliefs.
