Our Church Emblem Explained
The official emblem of The Church of God and of its concept of New Testament Judaism is made up of a golden Menorah candlestick inside the blue Star of David superimposed over the red cross.
This emblem indicates that life and renewal through the death of the Messiah transformed Judaism from an ancient and lifeless form into a new and living dimension.
The cross represents the sacrifice of Jesus to purchase New Testament Judaism and the church (Acts 20:28). The fact that it does not stand upright reveals that the Savior was offered once for all and that no other sacrifice for sin will ever be required (Romans 6:9,10; Hebrews 9:28).
Jesus was the Day Star of salvation, the Bright and Morning Star (Revelation 22:16). He was also the light of the world. The church is to be like Him, becoming living sacrifices (Romans 12:1), having the Day Star arising within it (II Peter 1:19), conforming it to the candlestick pattern (Hebrews 8:5) to be the light of the world (Matthew 5:12-15). As the Father sent the Son into the world, even so has He sent the church in His stead.
The Emblem of The Church of God, then, represents both Jesus and the revelation of the church.
