Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

Christ did not rise on Easter Sunday! Here's an article explaining what Christ did command His church to observe. HAVE you ever stopped to consider why you believe the things you believe? Where did you learn the custom of observing Easter? "I learned it from childhood," you reply. Of course you learned it from childhood. But where did the custom really originate? You have supposed it was part of the true Christian religion to observe Easter, "Good Friday," Lent and "Holy Week"; to have colored Easter eggs, to dress up and go to Church Easter Sunday. Yes, you have supposed the Bible taught these CUSTOMS. But where did God ever command YOU to keep any of them? The Meaning of Easter. From a child you have been led to believe that "Easter" signified the resurrection of Christ.
