The Congregational Holiness Church (CHC) is a Holiness Christian denomination that was founded in 1921 in High Shoals, Georgia, by a group of ministers who were dissatisfied with the Wesleyan Holiness Church. The CHC is headquartered in Griffin, Georgia.

The CHC has about 25,000 members in over 1,000 churches in the United States and Canada. It is a congregational denomination, which means that each church is autonomous and self-governing. The CHC has a national body, the General Conference of the Congregational Holiness Church, which provides resources and support to its member churches.

The CHC is a growing denomination, and it is active in evangelism and missions. It is also a leader in the Holiness movement.

The founder of the Congregational Holiness Church was the late A. J. Tomlinson, who was its first general superintendent. Tomlinson was a controversial figure, and his teachings have been criticized by some other Holiness denominations. However, the CHC remains a major force in the Holiness movement, and it continues to grow and expand its reach.

Here are some of the key beliefs of the Congregational Holiness Church:

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
  • There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of the virgin Mary, and is fully God and fully man.
  • He died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead on the third day.
  • He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
  • He will return to earth one day to judge the living and the dead.
  • Salvation is by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
  • Sanctification is a second definite work of grace that enables the believer to live a holy life.
  • The baptism in the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues is for all believers.
  • The church is the body of Christ and is made up of all believers.
  • The second coming of Christ is imminent.
  • The resurrection of the dead and the final judgment will take place.
