"There hasnt been any time of founding.  There's no year or names of founders."  Stephen said, "The only foundation is the teaching of Christ.  The message is the foundation and that has always been to get back to Christ."

June  5, 1983 - Nameless Congregation Holds Strong Grip on Faithful; By Bart Preecs
Quote from above by brother worker Walter: Pollock said he doesn't understand why the question of the group's history should be traumatic for ex-members. "I don't know how they could have come up with that," said Pollock, who denied that the fellowship makes unsubstantiated claims about its origins. "We know that it began with a group of men in the British Isles around the turn of the century. That's as far as we've been able to trace it."

RE:  Convention at Miltown, Washington
By Kathleen Hosfeld
Aug 17, 1983, Pg 1 - Criticism Clouds Church's Gathering - Miltown
Aug 18, 1983, Pg 1 - Former Members of No-Name Church Continue Quiet Protest--Miltown
Aug 30, 1982, Pg 1 - No-Name Church Meets for Convention - Miltown
Quote from 8/17/83:  However, according to author an ex-member Doug Parker, the church actually was founded in 1897 by William Irvine in Ireland. Irvine was joined in 1901 by Edward Cooney, who assisted in leadership organization until his excommunication in 1928. When Parker's book "The Se­cret Sect" first appeared, workers denied his historical ac­count of the group's origins, say ex-members. Now they say the ministers are "whitewashing" the revelation, saying it isn't significant . "We, don't deny that," said Therald Sylvester, Washington overseer, when asked if the his­torical account was true. He refused, however, to discuss why ex-members had a different impression. "I won't go into that detail," he said.

RE:  Convention at Santee, California
Obscure, Silent Nameless Sect Travels 'Secret' Path; By Russell Chandler
Quote from above: Richard Wulf, 27, a Two-by-Two worker in Mexico for two years, was asked about this apparent suppression of the sect's origins. "Near the turn of the century God raised up godly men in Ireland and Scotland," Wulf acknowledged. "We respect them and what they established. But we don't hold to that history and line of succession."
Quote from brother worker: Kennedy, the worker-spokesman, agreed that the "friends would probably tell you this fellowship began with Christ...Now we're not following these men but the New Testament. What we have today is the New Testament fellowship.

July  8, 1992, Pg 1 - Church with No Name Returns; By Bret Bloomquist
Quote from above: While the Encyclopedia of American Religions states that the 'Two-By-Twos' - as it calls them - were founded in 1886 by a Scotsman named William Irvine, both Lewis and Klepzig profess ignorance of any modern-day church history.  Lewis says there is no one founder or group of founders that this church without a written doctrine - except the Bible - can trace its lineage to. "Not to my knowledge," Lewis says. "We don't treat genealogical records as being purposeful. What would it mean to me if I could prove I'm a descendant of Abraham?" "It Was before my time," Klepzig says. "No one here claims to have started it." Lewis says that church members do not claim - as some say they claim - to be descendants of the original Apostles. "We don't make any claims to that," Lewis says.
