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, all attendees are screened, masks are worn and 6' distancing observed. 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.

Remembering our Dear Brother, Wayne Hendrix:

It is with sadness that we are notifying the Church of God (at large) that CGI minister, Mr.
Wayne Hendrix passed away in the morning of December 7th, 2021 at home with his family. Wayne served God and His people faithfully for decades and the last 25 years as an ordained minister of Jesus Christ, serving in the Church of God International (CGI). Over the years Wayne and his lovely wife, Sandi, faithfully traveled for God’s Church, both within and outside of the United States, as well as pastored congregations in Pittsburgh, Pa, Toledo, Columbus, and Medina, Ohio. Wayne was a major participant on many of the CGI’s video products, contributing to advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world, influencing thousands who heard his passionate presentations about the plan of salvation that Jesus Christ introduced to all of humanity. He was well like and loved by many and his excitement and knowledge of the Bible and God’s Truth was infectious to anyone that came in contact with him. He will be missed greatly. But, as it says in Psalms 116:15: “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” Wayne was a true saint and his passing is a loss to God’s Church, but we can rejoice that he is now reserved for a resurrection that will place him in God’s Kingdom as a king and priest. He’s finished his race and now awaits for his name to be called upon our Lords return to this planet. God speed that day, while we praise His name for all He has given us as co-heirs with Him.
