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.
I would like to ask this afternoon and also to answer; Why the Church? Why should there be the Church? They're churches all over the Western World, there attended every Sunday by a good section of the population. Do most people realize why there should be a Church or do they just take it for granted, sort of a club, like a social club? It's the thing to do, for some reason they don't know why they're suppose to go and attend church, attend services, but I would dare say that most people never stop to think, what is the purpose of the Church, why should there be a Church?
