I have noticed a great decline in the dress code of Holiness (and other) churches. While I am very traditional in doctrine, I'm not one to condemn people to hell over how they dress, but even still…Continue

People are not being filled with the Holy Ghost the way they used to be filled. When one was filled with the Holy Ghost, it was a true and visible change that took place in that individual. Why are…Continue

David Davis was converted at the age of 9 years. While just a boy, at this early age he told his mother that when he was old enough, he was going to play the organ for Brother Allen under his big tent. Not many years thereafter, God made that dream a reality.
Born in Arkansas, Sister Ernestine B. Washington grew up on the sanctified gospel of the '20s, singing primarily for her husband's church and denomination, Washington Temple C.O.G.I.C. Though inspired by the controlled Baptist style of the Roberta Martin Singers, she had a strident voice and was known to be a singing shouter in the mode of Mahalia Jackson. Her rare and most important recordings were executed from the late '40s through the '50s.
Bishop Frederick Douglas "F. D." Washington (January 1, 1914 - January 19, 1988) was a renowned Pentecostal minister of the Washington Temple Church of God in Christ (COGIC) in Brooklyn, New York. His most famous protege is Rev. Al Sharpton, whom he licensed and ordained as a minister at the age of nine. Eventually, Bishop Washington introduced young Al Sharpton to Reverend William Augustus Jones Jr., who converted Sharpton to Baptist, which he remains. Washington also served as a mentor and spiritual father to many COGIC pastors, including for example, Bishop Norman L. Prescott, who is now the prelate of New Jersey's Third Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction, Superintindent Robert L. Madison of Washington Temple, Elder TJ Williams Jr. of First COGIC of Bridgehampton, NY Elder Stanley Williams of Grace Temple COGIC in Westbury, NY Elder Odolph Wright of City Of Faith COGIC (New York and Georgia) as well as many of other proteges.
The Famous Davis Sisters of Philadelphia was founded by Ruth Davis in 1945 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Ruth had enlisted in the Women's Air Corp during World War II to fulfill her patriotic aspirations. During this time her musical and creative instincts came to the forefront of her personality and the nurturing of her artistic side conflicted with the strict military discipline required of WAC's. While she wanted to do her part to rid the world of the Axis evil and minimize Holocaust casualties, she was discharged by the military to Philadelphia in 1945 before the untimely demise of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Germany's capitulation. The end of the war was definitely in sight but Ruth was left with the task of carving out her place in the world as a young Afro-American woman in a world dominated by men. Ruth had been continually inspired by music and had heard the Wings Over Jordan Choir in the military, the old Southern-style male quartets on the radio, and heard the newly developing gospel sound in churches and on programs.

He‘s declared it for over five decades, “YOU DON’T HAVE ANY TROUBLE. . .ALL YOU NEED IS FAITH IN GOD,” and the message is still the same. The classic gospel message of faith and power continues to make a lasting impact wherever he goes. Rev. R.W. Schambach has devoted his life to preaching the pure gospel of Jesus Christ, believing that as Jesus Christ is presented as the living Savior of the world, signs and wonders will confirm the Truth. Through the years, Brother Schambach’s ministry has been marked by mass conversions and New Testament miracles- with the lame walking, the blind seeing, the deaf hearing, and many captives being set free by the power of God. A commanding voice and the gift of faith have distinguished Brother Schambach’s ministry through multi-media outreaches, including the Voice of Power radio and television programs. In over 200 nations of the world, the gospel of power has been preached in simple, direct fashion.
