As the Divinely appointed teacher of revealed truth, the Church is infallible...

The Vatican Council declares: "The Holy Ghost was not promised to the successors of Peter, in order that through His revelation they might manifest new doctrine: but that through His assistance they might religiously guard, and faithfully expound the revelation handed down by the Apostles, or the deposit of the faith" (Conc. Vat., Sess. IV, cap. liv). The obligation of the natural moral law constitutes part of this revelation. The authority of that law is again and again insisted on by Christ and His Apostles. The Church therefore is infallible in matters both of faith and morals...(Joyce . Transcribed by Douglas J. Potter. The Church. The Catholic Encyclopedia, Volume III.

The Church of God in Christ was formed in 1897 by a group of disfellowshipped Baptists , most notably Charles Price Jones (1865–1949) and Charles Harrison Mason (1864–1961). In the 1890s, C .P. Jones and C. H. Mason were licensed Baptist ministers in Mississippi who taught a Wesleyan doctrine of Christian perfection or Entire Sanctification as a second work of grace to their Baptist congregations. C. H. Mason was influenced by the testimony of the African-American Methodist evangelist Amanda Berry Smith , one of the most widely respected African-American holiness evangelists of the nineteenth century. Her life story led many African-Americans into the Holiness movement , including . Mason. He testified to receiving Entire Sanctification after reading her autobiography. [5]
