This historic building is known as the heart and foundation of the Pentecostal Holiness Christian denomination the Church Of God In Christ. Usually written as COGIC and pronounced "co'gic". Reported to be the number one largest Pentecostal church and the fifth largest Christian denomination in the United States, it is predominately comprised of African Americans but is seeing a constant growth in Caucasian population and many other minority communities. Members of the denomination are generally known as "Saints". The founder of the Church Of God In Christ (COGIC) was none other than the late great Bishop Charles E. Mason. He is memorialized in this magnificent church with his final resting place being in the entrance area of this glorious building. Identified as the HOME or BIRTHPLACE for the COGIC Christian denomination, it is impossible for one not to recognize the spiritual presence that envelopes you upon entering the building. It can be certainly said this building is a living testimony to the purpose and mission of the Churches Of God In Christ. It is a powerful experience to view and enter this anointed and spiritual place. While it is listed as a site seeing item it misleading and unfair to be classified this way as it is a personal spiritual experience one will have as your hearts are opened and you experience the filling of love and benevolence, and to top it all off you leave with such a feeling of peace and ease; a feeling of a new self-centered understanding and contentment as one has never experienced. I have to say personally it is an experience that shall impact your life in such a positive way you never shall forget.
