With this differentiation between the two "The COGIC, USA - INTERNATIONAL Church" became official and is sometimes disputed, but the COGIC, USA - INTERNATIONAL Church marks Chief Apostle J. L. Payne participation in the original move of God under Apostle William Seymour's revivals and Bishop Charles Harrison Mason's founding of the COGIC CHURCH as its organizational foundation.

Just before writing this text, a serious minded young man asked me, Bishop, Is it not true that, " a generation who allows truth to slip and does not take a stand for righteousness, only leaves the next generation to inherit a failure and fallen truth." I said to him, no truer words have ever been spoken! What one generation of people leaves undone, the next falls as a prey to the failure of the undone past generation. The problem becomes a double task to fix. Often the… Continue

Most true Christian would say, the possibilities of riches and wealth in life and the best rewards in living, is to have a Christ’s life filled with the God’s kind of success, peace of mind, joy and happiness with victory and success in eternal terms.

Good Day My Love Ones! Praise Yahweh! We Can Do All Things In Yahweh! It Is A Wonderful Time For Us To Be Here This Day! Note: Most Men And Woman Who Say They Have Been Call By The Most High God, Don't Even Know His Real Holy Name, The Letter "J" And "V' Is Only 379 Years Old It Came In 1630, And In The Hebrew There Is No Letter J Or V. Its A "Y" And A "W" These Are Facts; The Holy Name Of The Most High Is YHWH Which Is YUD HAY WAW HAY That Saids Yahweh. Look It Up: For Yourself "YHWH" And Then Tell The Truth, If You Are From The God Of The Hebrews And Bible, Ex 5:1, Ex 9:1, Ex 9:13, When You Know The Truth Tell It. Great Are U! Shalom!
