Welcome to Spirit and Truth Sanctuary, an inclusive spiritual community where all of God's children are welcomed and celebrated. A place where we worship in Spirit and in Truth. Jesus said, "The hour is coming and now is where we won't worship on this mountain nor in Jeruselem, but the Father is seeking for true worshippers who will worship in spirit and in truth...for God is Spirit." Spirit is bigger than Religion. Truth is bigger than any denomination. If you are looking for a REAL CHURCH full of REAL PEOPLE who worship a REAL GOD... look no further! For over 63 years our ministry has opened its doors to people from every walk of life. Today is no exception and our doors are open to you. When you walk into our doors, whatever label that you carry, whether it be your gender, sexual orientation, religion, culture, or race; any label that this temporary, physical realm has put on you, drops. So, if you've never been to church or been to one too many, this may just be the place for you. Will YOU join us as we continue the journey toward truth?
-D. E. Paulk
Spirit of Truth, CARRY ME where you will; BRING TO ME what You will; TAKE FROM ME what You will; AWAKEN IN ME what You will. The Christ MAN is around me. The Christ MIND is in me. The Christ POWER flows through me. And, the Christ MYSTERY exists as me. I believe it. I perceive it. And, now I receive it! I am surrendered. Amen. And, so it is!
It’s easier to start the course and state case than to stay the course. I’m ALL IN! Join me February 18th as we walk into the next phase of architecting Inclusion.
In 1981, my spiritual father, Earl Paulk, was consecrated the first Pentecostal Bishop in America. This ecclesiastical form, and administrative office, grew throughout the American and International Pentecostal denominations. On February 18th, 2024, in the legacy of Bishop Carlton Pearson, I will step into this office as we infuse the Pentecostal episcopacy with the Inclusive movement.Read More
How does a child prodigy and Pentecostal preacher progress into a powerful, provocative presence? A pariah to some, a prophet to many, and peculiar to all, Bishop Carlton D. Pearson's theological progression is, and must be, pondered! Join me this Sunday, January 21st at 5:30 p.m., at Morehouse College in the historic Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. International Chapel, as we pry open, prayerfully consider and praise the courage of a voice too powerful to pander or please.
There is a question your Divinely Creative Soul eagerly awaits permission to query: IS IT WORKING FOR ME? This question begins the process of reclaiming joy and realizing fulfillment in your life. All other questions must become secondary in your quest for balance. IS IT WORKING FOR ME inevitably leads you to a greater collective application: IS IT WORKING FOR US? Your personal journey toward self-actualization guides you toward a deeper social awareness. In 2024, take the journey within that manifests peace without!
Affirmation: “In 2024, I will ask myself the only question that matters: IS IT WORKING FOR ME? This year, I will discover the courage to require my thoughts, my spiritual practice, my relationships, my finances, my career, my health and my habits to render an answer. I am confident the Spirit of Truth will grant me the wisdom to say it, the vision to see it, and the courage to shift it! Amen.”
Celebrating the Life, the Living, the Loving and the Legacy of Bishop Carlton D. Pearson!
Being raised in, and being named successor of, America’s original mega church, I saw both the ugliness of religion and the disingenuous nature of many preachers. As a young minister, I became disenchanted and disillusioned with the church world as I knew it. Bishop Carlton D. Pearson made me believe again…not in the church. But rather, in myself, my soul, and in a bigger and better vision and version of the Ultimate Reality we call God. Through his unfaltering friendship and unfailing loyalty, I sat at the feet of this brilliant mind, revolutionary spirit, and modern day church reformer for the last twenty years. C.D.P. (As I affectionately called him) would ask me regularly, “What will a man give in exchange for his soul?” When Jesus asked this question he used the word soul in context with the mind (soul in Greek is “psuche” where we get the word psyche or mind). As a proud and loyal son of Carlton Pearson, and as an architect of the Inclusive Movement, I honor a man who neither exchanged nor sold his soul for fortune, followers or fame. We lovingly called Bishop Pearson “Carly Moses.” He truly delivered us from the bondage of fear and the baggage of religion. He guided us away from the idolatry of creating God in our own image and removed the obstacles that kept us from seeing and sensing our own divinity. And, he reminded us to take our joy seriously. God broke the mold when Carlton Pearson was created. Only history will reveal the impact of this eternally pure Spirit that took on flesh for seventy years. In his own prophetic words we will all live to know that “Today’s heretic is tomorrow’s hero!” Well done my friend, family and father. I love you with my whole heart. The man may be gone. However, the message, mission and mandate remains. We will stay the case and course. -D.E.
