- About COGIC
On behalf of Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. God has placed it upon his heart to call the Church Of God In Christ annually to a 50 day consecration of fasting and prayer, called the C. H. MASON PILGRIMAGE TO PENTECOST. Our desire is for God to fill His people with the Holy Ghost and to continue the revival that He started on the Day of Pentecost!
Over 2.9 billion people on the face of the Earth have NEVER heard the Gospel preached!
We need the power of the Holy Ghost to reach the world for Christ!
This consecration is NOT a departmental event or activity; this is a call for the ENTIRE CHURCH to seek the LORD.
C. H. MASON PILGRIMAGE TO PENTECOST starts Sunday, April 5, 2015 (Resurrection Sunday) through Sunday May 24, 2015 (Pentecost Sunday). Attached are the 11 prayer requests that our leader desires for us to focus on during the 50 day consecration; so that we may have some type of unity, structure and strategy in our prayers.

You are NOT asked to read or recite these; but to catch the heart and spirit of the prayer requests and allow the Lord to use YOU to cover these (or similar) needs in prayer for at least 11 minutes of your prayer time every day for 50 days. This is why the consecration is also called 11/11/50.
You are requested to fast on Tuesdays and Fridays (COGIC’s traditional fast days) from Midnight to at least 12 Noon. Again, this is at the request of our Presiding Bishop and how the Lord is leading him. Your participation would be greatly appreciated!
We need your help:
The Presiding Bishop is requesting saints of ALL NATIONS to participate and also believers from other denominations are welcomed to join us, as we seek the face of God.
May God richly bless you as your participate in the mighty move of God!

for Our Extreme Commitment
“For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.”

Official video response from Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. of Church of God in Christ(COGIC) regarding the incident at the recent COGIC 107th Convocation and the viral video of Andrew Caldwell.
15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. KJV
Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. Statement On The Trayvon Martin Incident And The George Zimmerman Not Guilty Verdict
Our prayers and sympathy are extended to the Trayvon Martin family. May we all pray and work for the health and unity of our nation.
We mourn the loss of a potential-filled young life. This incident portrays much about the increasing sickness of our society where incidents of this nature occur.
If George Zimmerman had not carried a gun, he would not have been so emboldened to come into young Trayvon Martin’s space in an inappropriate way. Trayvon Martin should have been allowed to complete his trip to and from the store safely, without harassment.
We need the creation of and conformity to effective and appropriate gun control laws.
A friend indicated, “If George Zimmerman had been black and Trayvon Martin white, the verdict would have been different.”
This is a sad time for our nation.
