Early journals of D.S. Warner (1872 - 1880)
Papers of Barney E Warren, early Church of God hymn writer
F.G. Smith, Gospel Trumpet editor (1916 - 1930)

This collections also includes congregational and regional histories, books written by Church of God authors, books published by Gospel Trumpet Company/Warner Press, Church of God pamphlets, Christian education curriculum, and national and regional periodicals, such as the Gospel Trumpet.

Because the Church of God is congregational in nature, there are very few records of genealogical interest.
