"Black churches are very powerful forces in the African American community and always have been. Because religion has been that one place where you have an imagination that no one can control. And so, as long as you know that you are a human being and nobody can take that away from you, then God is that reality in your life that enables you to know that." --James H. Cone

All Black churches are not alike ....They are as different as the communities they are located in....When I speak of the "Black Church" I am speaking of the church that was instrumental in building my faith....and at the same time instill in me hope to hang on in there...That's the Black Church that I love and support....Again, I grew up in the black church and have always been a part of it...But within the construct of the black church there's a variety of church denominations.... For one "The Church of God in Christ" (COGIC)Which is the largest African American church in America...It's the largest Pentecostal and denominational church in the United States...I hope The Black Church is not exploited for rating.
