The love that we have been given through Jesus and his Body is where we grow to be more like him and less like us daily. We express that love to him and each other as brothers and sisters that have been called and set apart. Our Bond and relationship to Jesus Christ is akin to the bond between a husband and a wife. He, being our Husband and we, being the Church, as his wife. Father loved us so much that he gave his only begotten Son to die for us. So then, we also strive to love each other with that same type of love. Regardless of background, past history or differences we are to love one another and bear each other's burdens. It is in this way that the World will know to whom we belong. GOD is love. When we demonstrate and spread this love we testify on Him. If we dwell in love we dwell in Him.
1 John 4:10-16 (KJV)
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Welcome to the Church of God that in Christ Jesus International Ministries also known as (C.O.G.T.I.C.J). How did we come up with that name, you may ask? We call ourselves this because we believe all churches belong to God and are in Christ Jesus "For you brother, became a follower of the churches of God which in Judea are IN Christ Jesus" (1 Thessalonians 2:14).
At Church of God that is in Christ Jesus International Ministries, it's our mission to help you explore your relationship with God and grow spiritually in Christ. We are sincere Christians who meet together frequently with the purpose of worshiping God and having fellowship in Christ Jesus. We are people who are tired of playing Church. We want to be the church that God has called us to be. We are a "New Testament Church" which some may call it a "spirit-filled" church. We believe in the leading of the Holy-Spirit. Our Church is passionate about God and just want to come into his presence and worship him. We only teach "Christ and Him crucified" (1 Corinthians 2:2). We believe the only growth that is of importance is spiritual growth. Experience the warmth of faith and the strength of our Lord Jesus Christ and be blessed. Come join us each Sunday at 11:45 at:

COGTICJ CORE VALUES
Our goal at COGTICJ is to be ever centered and focused on Father's love and fellowship with HIM through the Body of HIS Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We have been reconciled and forgiven through the Blood of Jesus in order to restore us back to the Father. In the Body of Christ (Church) we have become partakers of his excellent Love and are no longer separated from his company. We become Co-heirs of the Kingdom of Heaven under Jesus our King, First-born amongst many sons and daughters.
GALATIANS 4:6-7 (KJV)
6 AND BECAUSE YE ARE SONS, GOD HATH SENT FORTH THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO YOUR HEARTS, CRYING, ABBA, FATHER.
7 WHEREFORE THOU ART NO MORE A SERVANT, BUT A SON; AND IF A SON, THEN AN HEIR OF GOD THROUGH CHRIST.
