(JUNE 12, 1946 – JANUARY 5, 2023)

We were deeply saddened on Thursday,  January 5,  2023, to learn that our
long-time friend and brother in Christ, Bronson T. James, had fallen asleep
in the Lord.

Bronson, 76, was a long-time servant of God's people. He was one of the
pioneers of the Church of God International ministry. He pastored churches,
served for decades on the CGI's Ministerial Council and Board of Directors,
and was instrumental in the creation and production of the Armor of God television program.

Bronson was known especially for his exceptional singing voice and musical skills. He frequently contributed to the worshipful atmosphere of festivals and Sabbath services through providing special music. He also participated in musical productions in Tyler, Detroit, and other areas.

A gifted orator, Bronson not only hosted the Armor of God program for many years but also hosted his own television and radio talk shows at various times. He was well-known within Tyler's media industry.

We look forward to seeing him again in that day when the trumpet sounds and all who are in Christ, whether living or asleep, rise to meet the Lord to join Him in His everlasting Kingdom.




Dear Brethren,

Services have now resumed in compliance with Florida social distancing guidelines.  For those still immuno-compromised and subject to the "Stay at Home" preference, Sabbath services continue to be broadcast from CGI Medina ( beginning at 11 am EST.  To meet your own schedule, there is also a link to YouTube on that page where the service can be accessed anytime up to about 1:30 and re-started to your convenience.  We have a real concern for the health of all and we have strong support for our national duty to do our part to help defeat this serious virus.  Note: Out of respect for all during COVID 19, and because of the ever changing requirements, we respect attendees preferences. Thank You.    This is a worldwide issue that needs the effective prayers of all.  There is victory through our Saviour who loves us, sacrificed for us and will deliver us. We pray greatly for God's Grace to be upon us, our Nation and our Leaders and all seeing this website. Let us not be afraid but be wise and faithful.  For consolation … see psalm 91:

Psa 91:7  A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Welcome all to The Church of God International / St. Pete.

This symbolic "Lion and Lamb" image is derived from scripture verses in the Book of Isaiah 65:25 and Isaiah 11:6 and in the book of Hosea 2:18 which portray a time when a fierce beast like a lion will live a peaceable co-existence with a gentle lamb during the future kingdom age when Jesus Christ shall reign over of all kingdoms of the Earth as “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS”, with His Kingdom promised to last into eternity (Rev.11:15 and Daniel 7:27) at the second coming of our Saviour who will bring the restitution of all things described in (Act 3:21) as he establish his Kingdom for  the greatest Harvest of human souls ever imagined.

Please join us every Saturday(Sabbath) at our St Petersburg location at 11 am, as we delve further  into God's amazing  Truth and plan for mankind (check with this website for the COVID compliance procedures).
