Abstract
John Winebrenner believed that each of us needs a new birth in Christ Jesus; thus he left the denomination wherein he was raised and ordained and began a new church and denomination, "The Church of God." Winebrenner took a stand on such things as education, temperance, and slavery. After Winebrenner's death, the Church of God withdrew from speaking to social concerns. In recent times the Church has returned to its reforming roods, and Winebrenner gives us an example to follow, not only in being the Church, but in how to deal with the controversy this may generate.
