The Restored Church of God (RCG) is one of the many churches to form following major doctrinal changes in the Worldwide Church of God (WCG) which was founded by Herbert W. Armstrong. RCG claims to retain the tenets, style, and structure of the earlier WCG before Armstrong's death in 1986. It is one of the Sabbatarian Churches of God that emerged following WCG's major schism in 1995.
