Church of God Now in 185 Countries

Church of God World Missions Director Dr. David M. Griffis and Field Director for Europe/CIS/Middle East Dr. Stephen Darnell have announced that a church has been started in the nation of Andorra. This is now the 185th country of the world in which the Church of God has a presence.

Andorra is located in Europe on the Iberian Peninsula and is bordered by France in the north and Spain in the south.

The Andorran congregation celebrates their dedication service.

The addition of Andorra places the Church of God closer to establishing a presence in every country of the world.  A presence usually entails at least the establishment of an official church, although some closed countries have congregations existing through house churches. For the security and safety of missionaries in restrictive areas of the world, there is no published list of the countries.

“This is a great day in the Church of God as our global family has expanded once again,” stated General Overseer Tim Hill. “I truly appreciate the efforts of our Church of God overseer in Spain, Rev. Jaume Torrado Baquedano. His involvement was crucial in making this church plant possible.”

Griffis stated, “Church of God World Missions warmly welcomes this church and the Andorran people to our family.”
