Amanda Berry Smith: #BlackHistory #COGICHistory #OurStory
Amanda Berry Smith was an Evangelist in the Methodist church who traveled around the world spreading the Gospel of Christ. Her autobiography entitled, "An Autobiography The Story of the Lord's Dealings with Mrs. Amanda Smith the Colored Evangelist" discussed her conviction regarding the doctrine of sanctification. Her teachings and writings greatly influenced Bishop C.H. Mason's beliefs regarding the works of grace. He began preaching on sanctification and holiness even before being filled with the Holy Spirit at the Azusa Street Revival. The life and ministry of this remarkable woman left an indelible mark on our Founder and the Church of God in Christ.
