On Schism in the Church
NCW 30, February 1996:
The Third Rebellion
Q. I see from recent publications that the New Covenant Church has suffered a defection of many members. What have they called their Church? What effect will that have on the direction of the Church? Will you abandon your base in Norway? Will the gathering to Zion be abandoned or relocated somewhere else?
The schismatics are unorganised and have no name or (so they claim) leaders. Their departure means that the New Covenant can restart on an even keel with a membership that is completely united on all points of doctrine and practice for the first time in its history. The New Covenant Church of God will continue to fulfil its commission uninterrupted. There are no plans to abandon our base in Norway  though there are very definite plans to make this work more international. The gathering to Zion is one of the Church's central tenets and will not be abandoned. Since the exact spot for Zion has still not been identified it will not be "relocated".
 The Church unexpectedly relocated its headquarters to Sweden in 1997 but continues to maintain a presence in Norway (980508).
