... the death of Herbert W. Armstrong, who departed this life on January 16, 1986, aged 93. After trying his luck in the advertising industry he converted to the Church of God (Seventh Day) before launching out with his own prophecy-based ministry, originally known as the Radio Church of God, later the Worldwide Church of God. His church published The Plain Truth magazine and a radio/television program called The World Tomorrow, which was fronted for many years by his son Garner Ted, who died in 2003. Controversy surrounded the self-designated 'apostle' in his final years over allegations of incest and alcoholism. Armstrong's church has since moved into mainstream evangelicalism and has rebranded as Grace Communion International, though it retains a similar top-down structure. Armstrong's unique teachings, including British Israelism, and Sabbath and Holy Day observance, are continued in a number of schismatic bodies.
