The Church of God (Anderson) is a Holiness Christian non-denominational body, with roots in Wesleyan pietism and also in the restorationist and anabaptist traditions.[1] One of its more distinctive features is that there is no formal membership, since the movement believes that true biblical salvation, which will result in a life free from sin, makes one a member. Similarly, there is no formal creed other than the Bible. Accordingly, there is much official room for diversity and theological dialog, even though the movement’s culture is strongly rooted in Wesleyan holiness theology.
