HISTORY OF THE C.H. MASON BIBLE INSTITUTE

The core concern of the Founding Father of the Church of God In Christ, the late Bishop Charles Harrison Mason, was that those drawn to the confession of faith that he espoused ; would become fully instructed in that faith and go on to lead lives as productive and creative Christians.

This basic concern was deeply rooted in the teaching of Jesus who taught that those whose lives have been touched, converted and transformed by His Life would go on to change others lives and the humankind. Bishop Mason’s theology was biblical theology, which was developed out of years of personally searching the Bible and seeking the will of God for his life. History verifies that his long search ended in Los Angeles, California in 1907. It was the year that he received the Third Work of Grace, the Holy Ghost and spoke in Tongues as the Spirit gave utterance.

The Founding Father of the Church of God in Christ was not only a student of the bible, he was also a student of secular education. Bishop Mason’s academic pursuits lead him to Arkansas Baptist College, from which he departed and founded a new educational venture at Lexington, Mississippi: Saints Industrial Academy, Saints Junior College.

In 1970, another giant step was taken to further enhance the education endeavor, the Charles Harrison Mason Theological Seminary in Atlanta, Georgia. The (TWJ) C.H. Mason Bible Institute was established in 1997 to begin training for the ministers who were in the process of obtaining their Elders/Evangelist Ordination Certificate. Recently, there has been an addition to the C.H. Mason Institute, the Missionary Licensing Division. This division functions as the training element for the licensing of Missionary/Evangelist.
