NBC had John Larson visit the cathedral that is the home of "one of the fastest growing religious movements in the world." Bishop Charles Blake's congregation of 24,000 souls at the megachurch on Crenshaw Boulevard in central Los Angeles is part of the 6m-strong Church of God in Christ. Larson offered a brief background on Pentecostal Christianity, founded in a revival in 1906, known for speaking in tongues and "high energy celebration." Now this mostly African-American church "is going global" launching a $6m mission called Save Africa's Children to 23 countries--"from Crenshaw all the way to Cameroon."
