COGlinks, links to websites of groups somehow once related to the Worldwide Church of God

The following is an alphabetical list of groups/publications somehow once related to the Worldwide Church of God (thus it does not list all Sabbatarian groups). The name listed after the link is the individual who appears to be the most prominent in some respect in the group--if a group disagrees with the name or other comments after, please contact me there is no name listed, then no name was found--I personally feel that articles should list the author, but some groups appear to not wish to follow that practice--also, I have not included the word 'the' as part of any group's title and have normally copied what the title appeared to be from the group's website. If a link is found after the name, it will go to an article I wrote which explains how that group differs from the WCG under Herbert Armstrong.

Worldwide Church of God (no longer accepts COG doctrines, usually teaches against them and was renamed Grace Communion International) WCG Announces 35 Beliefs Book

Now there are two sort of large groups I have not intentionally left out, but they don't really have a unified website. The first are people who are still in WCG and who feel that WCG is still God's Church (even though WCG changed its name to Grace Communion International). The following two articles should be applicable (even though Ron Wallen died) Comments on the Teachings of Ron Wallen, Philip Neal and others who Professed that WCG has God's Authority and Do You Know What Were the First Changes the Tkach Administration Made?

Furthermore, the second is that there are many independent members who occasionally fellowship with various groups. Here is an article for them Independent Members of the COG: HWA Comments, Plus Questions and Answers

Note: With the exception of listing the Worldwide Church of God (now called Grace Communion International), webpages whose primary purposes seem to be to be against the Churches of God are not included above. Nor is being listed above an endorsement that the group is actually part of the true Church of God (God only knows--and some have become so close to non-COG groups that they it may not be correct to categorize them as part of the COG). Most groups listed above are quite small. Some groups had so many pop-up issues that they are not listed (could not get to their actual page without excessive difficulties). I should also comment that those listed as 'CEM supporting' are mainly independents who send a portion of the income to CEM or pay to sponsor CEM's radio broadcast; they are sort of a loose confederation (so loose, that one who is actually mentioned frequently at CEM's website and who sponsors its radio broadcast told me that his group has no CEM affiliation)--I should probably mention that CEM does not have the type of income one would expect since over 1,000 have some connection to it. The above listing also does not include individual congregation websites (such as those from UCG/LCG congregations or separate international sites for the groups--those can normally be accessed from the groups main page) for those who are actually part of larger groups.
