“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.” (Ephesians 2:19-22, KJV).
Greetings Dear Readers:
Out of all of the ties that bind us in faith, holiness and sanctification are the foundational threads on which we were woven and yet stand. 150 years beyond the birth of our founder, and currently over 6.5 million members strong, we cannot deny the very crux of our denomination that has set us apart, shaping us into the globally influential church that we have become today…holiness
We honor Bishop C.H. Mason as the man whom God appointed to lead our charge. We do not deify or idolize him, but we hold in high esteem an example of a man who successfully personified 1 Corinthians 11:1, “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” We remember and continue adhering to the sacred statutes of holiness on which the Church of God in Christ was established, as we recount the inspirational stories of our modest beginnings. In doing so, the sacrifices of the saints who have gone before us remain cherished and the teachings of our founder live on.
