Branham followers believe that William Branham was the "angel of the Laodicean church" age (Rev. 3:14), God’s end-time prophet sent to correct errors in the Church so the Bride of Christ will be prepared for Christ’s return. Branham also taught he was Elijah to the Gentiles (Mal. 4:5), and his followers consider him the "seventh angel" of Revelation 10:7. Branham denied the historic Christian doctrine of the Trinity in favor of a sort of modalism (in which the Father, Son and Holy Spirit appear in various modes). Branhamite groups preserve and disseminate Branham’s messages as though they were Scripture.

Branhamism is not a centralized movement, and various groups loyal to Branham and his teachings publish, broadcast, and send missionaries across the world. Individual "Message" churches use a wide variety of names and can be difficult to identify at first. VGR manufactures and ships millions of tracts, cassettes, and other materials to Branham followers around the globe.
