Foundation Faith of God

The Foundation Faith of God was founded in 1974 by former members of the Process Church of the Final Judgment, including the great majority of the leadership. Many in the Process Church had become increasingly discouraged by the direction being taken by church founder Robert de Grimston. He had come to focus more and more on a dualist doctrine of the unity of Christ and Satan, and the church had been identified as a Satanist religion in the popular press. The leaders collectively withdrew, leaving the church an empty shell, and reorganized as the Foundation Church of the Millennium. They later changed names to the Foundation Faith of the Millennium (1977) and adopted the present name in 1980.

The Foundation Faith of God has a doctrine approaching orthodox Christianity and affirms a belief in the Christian Trinity, the deity of Christ, salvation from sin, and the necessity of a new birth. The church is strongly focused on endtime issues of the Second Coming of Christ and the coming kingdom of God. It has a healing ministry and many of the ministers offer spiritual (psychic) consultations. The church also maintains a strong social ministry.
