The Megiddo Church is a small American Restorationist denomination founded by L. T. Nichols in 1880. They settled in Rochester in 1904. They believe in Christ's imminent return, the bodily resurrection of the prophet Elijah, and the annihilation of sinners rather than hell. They also view Jesus as a divine power rather than a person and reject the doctrine of the Trinity. Nichols's birthday on October 1 is an important holiday in the church's calendar.
Their magazine the Megiddo Message is published four times a year. Their history was documented in a 2012 book called Waiting for Elijah: A History of the Megiddo Mission by Gari-Anne Patzwald.
