Churches of God in Christ
Churches of God in Christ are one of the largest Pentecostal
denominations in the world. The church has about 3,700,000 members in
the United States and about 1,300,000 in more than 50 other countries.
The base for the church's faith is the Bible, with emphasis on
the experiences of the apostles on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:4). The
churches follow an episcopal form of government, with bishops at the
Bishop Charles Harrison Mason and others founded the church in 1895 in
Lexington, Mississippi, as a Holiness church. Holiness churches are
American Protestant churches that stress personal experience, morality,
and usually a fundamentalist approach to the Bible. In 1907, influenced
by the Pentecostal movement, Bishop Mason declared the church to be
Pentecostal. The church's international
headquarters are in Memphis, Tennessee
