a NEW RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT founded by Herbert W. ARMSTRONG in 1933. It preachers a FORM of BRITISH ISRAELISM supported by a ARIAN CHRISTOLOGY and denial of such TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN doctrines as the TRINITY. The success of the movement began with Armstrong's innovative radio program The World Tomorrow which was later adapted to television and is supported by the free distribution of its magazine The Plain Truth. The Church, which experienced a major split in the 1970s, is based in Pasadena California, USA, where it operates Ambassador College.
