History

Church of the Living God, the Pillar and Ground of the Truth

split into  House of God Which is the Church of the Living God, the Pillar and Ground of the Truth (1919)

 

The House of God Which is the Church of the Living God, The Pillar and Ground of Truth, a predominantly black Pentecostal church, was founded in 1919 when the Philadelphia congregation of the Church of the Living God, The Pillar and Ground of Truth (founded by Mary L. Tate) became independent. Subsequently, a new denomination arose. It is not to be confused with the church of the same name that derives from the Church of the Living God (Christian Workers for Fellowship).
