And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Eph 4:11-16 (KJV)
Warning! Warning! Warning!
It is with a sad heart that I write these words today, but I feel it is now necessary to warn you on the field of three men who are spreading wild stories and false information regarding The Church of God of North Carolina, Inc. They are telling that I was removed from office as the International Overseer of The Church of God which is a false statement. I have received several calls from Peru and Honduras regarding these men and the trouble they are causing in these two countries. One of these men, Mr. Rodger D. Tidwell was with us for some 20 years and during that time he built a new church in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas, but did not gain any new attendance or new members. His license was finally revoked as a minister with us. Then a man by the name of Mr. John A. Pultz got up with him and started having illegal meetings against the Church and soon another one joined them by the name of Mr. Keith D. Murphy in these illegal meetings. Soon they decided in the middle of the year that they would come and put me out of headquarters by taking my keys and all three asked that I resign and give them the keys. All three of these men are without proper license to preach by The Church of God of North Carolina and now they are operating without a license or a legal headquarters. They have no legal church now and are operating without proper authority from the State of Arkansas. The pastor of the Walnut Ridge church has made them all members of that organization and receiving their tithes and offerings as an illegal church without any kind of registration as a legal church. They have no registration at all by which to operate and once they are caught will have to give account to the government of the United States of America. When they left us Mr. John A Pultz stole the guide book by which they posted their rules and regulations from our web-site onto theirs. They are also stole the Women's Missionary Band (WMB), Victory Leaders Band (VLB), Assembly Band Movement (ABM), Church of Prophecy Markers Association (CPMA), and the Bible Training Institute (BTI). These all belong to The Church of God of North Carolina as registered trademarks and are protected under the trademark laws of the United States of America and may not be used by any other group. These are all federal crimes and are punishable by law in the United States of America for violation of trademark law.
These men are not permitted in our pulpits anywhere in the world and are without any authority to represent The Church of God of North Carolina.
