Christ Gospel is a fundamentalist, Pentecostal Christian group. Like most Christian denominations, it espouses a set of doctrines known as the Apostles’ Creed. Like most Pentecostal groups, the church believes in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, and Christ Gospel services are exuberant celebrations. People sing, shout, dance, clap, run, praise, and worship God with all their being and all their might.
Yet at times the services are quiet enough to hear a pin drop as members study the Bible attentively.
Christ Gospel churches believe that worshiping God embraces the use of all kinds of music and instruments. At our headquarters church, one will hear drums, guitars, saxophones, violins, trumpets, piano and organ to accompany the singing of traditional hymns, country gospel music, gospel music, and even classical oratories.
The church emphasizes the importance of being united in the love of Christ, regardless of nationality, race, ethnicity, gender, or creed. In fact, Christ Gospel churches were racially integrated long before the rest of society—not because the church was politically active, but merely because it strongly believed this was the right way for Christians to be.
