OUR HISTORY

The historical background of the Saintsville Sanctuary Church Of God In Christ is a rich legacy, which stems from two churches in Dallas, Texas: Wheatley Church Of God In Christ and Haynes Chapel Church Of God In Christ.  These churches; located in the Southern Sector of Dallas.

 

Elder Thomas Tolbert founded the Wheatley COGIC, in the early 1900’s.  Located in the Wheatley Edition.  Following the demise of Elder Tolbert, Elder Joe S. Jackson became the pastor.

 

In 1948, Superintendent F.L. Haynes was in charge of the entire state of Texas.  Texas was later divided into four Ecclesiastical Jurisdictions. In 1954 Bishop F.L. Haynes assumed leadership of Texas Northeast Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction. During his tenure as Bishop, in 1973 the state purchased the property at 2200 South Marsalis Ave. Dallas, TX. to serve as the State Headquarters.  “Saintsville”, and called it the “Home of the Saints”

 

At the demise of Bishop F.L. Haynes, in 1977, the Presiding Bishop J.O. Patterson, Sr., became the interim State Bishop for Texas Northeast and served from 1977-1978.

 

In 1979, Pastor J. Neaul Haynes was elevated to episcopacy as Prelate of Texas Northeast First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction. He combined the Wheatley and Haynes Chapel churches.  He then relocated the two congregations to Saintsville Sanctuary Church Of God In Christ as one family.
