As a classical Pentecostal holiness church, COGIC continues to embrace its holiness heritage. The church has a tradition of prayer, fasting, and praise.
COGIC is a trinitarian Holiness Pentecostal denomination. The church teaches three separate and distinct works of grace that God performs in the life of believers namely: salvation, sanctification, and the baptism or infilling of the Holy Spirit. The church declares to be evangelical in ministry, fervently fundamental in doctrinal practices and distinctively Pentecostal in worship and expression.
