Hey, I think I may know you. Were you on the Grace Travelers singing group in the late 50's?
You might know me, I sang in a group but not the Travelers. Traveled all over. Stayed because I didn't know any better. You know how they tried to brain wash us in believing if we left we were doom. When I left, I couldn't believe the blessing I was receiving from God. I paid my tithes to the needy. I feed, clothe and shelter as many people I could help. When I looked down on someone, it was to pick them up. Try going to a UHOP kitchen and see if you can get a free meal........I now read my Bible daily and i thank God, I thank God I truly am Free. oh I live very well retired

I was moved by your story because it mirrowed mine and I thought you were possibly one of the girls that traveled with me. There were quite a few girls that traveled that year who were victims of Grace so (bishop) Delores Beal organized a singing group called the Travelers.
I too am retired and now work in the outreach ministries through my church and I feel so fulfilled. I feel my passion to do the work that God intended for me to do in Math. 25:35 was fueled by the lack of any such ministries in the HOP. We are living proof that there is life after the HOP and nothing horrible will happen to you.
I would like to encourage anyone who visit this site and has experienced a feeling that something is not right with the beliefs and practices of the HOP, to find refuge in a bible believing. practicing church and experience a new birth of freedom. As I stated before, I still have family and friends that attend the HOP and I still love them and I pray for them regularly.
I recently attended the funeral of my nephew who was shot. He was a band member so the service was held at the HOP. and the church was filled to capacity with non-members. Its just so amazing how they can preach and sing Jesus, Jesus, Jesus and barely mention Daddy Bailey with no band fanfare. And switch on the very next day and its all Daddy Bailey with full band fanfare. Thats Hypocritical and I know God is not pleased, but I still love them. Agape.

You don't know real praise and worship until you leave this place. Once you leave you find the real comfort in knowing the savior Jesus Christ. There is non like him, no one in the HOP took nails for you and died on the cross, so why do you take his name out of songs....I use to do it myself, but that was before, and now I know the truth. I pray God shows these people the way out and do it soon, because the wrath of God is no joke. I fear God and not Man....

Hallaluhah!! I get excited when I hear from a true believer of Jesus Christ. When I look back and see from where he bought me.. my soul cry out and I can't keep it to myself. This is why I post to this site to bring my sisters and brothers of the HOP into the real knowledge of Jesus Christ and to open thier blinded eyes by example because I was where they are. Coninue to be blessed.

What amazes me is that we are a week away from the most devastating event in the history of one of the top 5 industrial nations and economic powerhouses in the world. What has this bishop stated about it? Has he asked for prayers, donations? Has he offered any assistance? Or is he and the HOP folk so introverted and isolated that they do not understand the magnitude or impact this event has on mankind, the rotation of planet, the adjustment of solar time? Just a little food for thought....

I dont know what you mean by fraud, However I was in there for over 40 years and now that I'm out I can honestly look back and say that they exemplified and executed the characteristics of a CULT.(Def. A system of religious worship or ritual. a devoted attachment to, or extravagant admiration of a person. The object of such attachment is a group of followers) As a child I can remember we threw our coats down so that Grace could work on them.

Indiviuals just because the hop is right doesnt mean all the members are, gods always used one man to lead his people thats stripture dadi bailey is dat man he is our father in the gospel there for we call him daddi bailey...the house of prayer is mention in black and white over and over in the king james bible..people have all kinds of things to sugar code and hide the truth giving to charity and giving back to the community..but the hop gives you the truth strate from the book. Everything in the sweet house of prayer is free will g class is for the building and spreading of house of prayers all over the united states..trust me study and research the hop its the truth..........thats the truth..........u cant say the hop is wrong because a few members were not right..........
just want the truth wrote:
Oh by the way, I NEED someone from the UHOP to please explain to me why they really never come to the aid of members of their congregation in tough times. I've noticed that everytime someone mentioned it on this post...IT IS NEVER ANSWERED!
So please! Stop beating around the bush, because this is something that I've asked myself for years!
I just want this organization to know that I've done well for myself after their "diss".
I've gone through an awful lot but I've gotten through my trials and tribulations by calling on the LORD!
I used to always wonder if "DADDY MADISON" could sleep at night when he's in his mansion in D.C., while myself as a former "maid" had to walk down other avenues just to find somewhere to lay my head for the night....wondering what could possibly happen to me as a young 22 year old female. When I did turn to the UHOP for, memebers looked down on me, and then I depended only on myself for survival.That's also when I began aknowledging GOD and asked HIM to keep me from harm out in the streets from the pimps, drug dealers,etc.
And as sure as there is a GOD, things started looking up for me!It wasn't perfect at first but it let me know that GOD heard me and didn't turn a deaf ear when I needed HIM most!
So, to this day, I am still restoring and trying to find who I really am. Because this organization has confused me, and I was a member
from birth!
Aww man! If only the members from....(will not put them out there like that) could see what I've blossomed into today....I'm attending a prestigous college (planning on writing about my life experience one day),I've met good people along the way....but in a way, I thank them for what they put me through to be the woman that I am today!
I thank GOD for watching over me through the tough times and it is HIM that is my LORD AND SAVIOUR!
-PLEASE....Don't forget to answer the question first asked at the beginning of this posting! ONLY SOMEONE FROM THE UHOP CAN ANSWER! As it has been bothering me for most of my life!
Please help ME understand!
-Just want the truth

I left a comment some weeks ago on here. On my small encountered with this organized religion UHOP. I visited one of the Miami convocation or conventions years ago and this was while Bishop McCullough was the leader. As I stated before the things that I saw and heard and engrained within my memory forever. I never forget having a hard time sleeping that night. Since I never witnessed what I deemed an occult religion in action right before my eyes, hidden with the name Apostolic Faith on it's doors. Although it disturbs me yet today, I am grateful I personally saw these occult type actions. Because I have used what I saw to encourage students who where in my sunday school class and also at youth retreats, on keeping your relationship with God personal, loving him with your whole heart, and warning them against any church including our own, that wouild allow the idol worship of any kind including their Bishop, Chief Overseer or whatever glorious title deemed by an organization. Christ is our Savior and when we assemble together it's in worship to him.
In talking to young people in diffrent forums I have discussed how brainwashed these type of people must be, if in fact having generations being born into this occult. That only mention Jesus by the way, but raise their man leader on the mountain top as though he is the Mighty Conquering King. Yes I am glad to have seen this idol worship for myself. So I can warn the youth and young adults preparing to leave home and go to college to be careful of any religion. There are so many disguises in these last and evil days, even some with the name Apostolic Faith on their doors. I thank God for those who have been delivered from UHOP and other occultic groups alike. I thank God for this site for those who having being set free, wanting to see others delivered and set free from these oppressers and use this and other types of media to help and covey the message of Christ. Continue to let Christ our Savior use you.

They were cult leaders who took advantage of poor, black, ignorant African-Americans. Daddy Grace wasn't even a real bishop. He was self-proclaimed. Therefore the other "Daddy's" weren't real bishops either.

You folk who cast a stone at Grace, Mccollough, and Madison will definitely have to give an account in the last day. Whether you know it or not you are sinning by your accusation because you have accused these men of wrong-doing and you have not follow what The Father's Instructions, which is THE LAW, concerning making accussations.
Daddy McCollough and Daddy Madison NEVER preached themselves. They preached Jesus Christ. They preached too you ex-memebers that you must be "born anew", they preached that you must live holy, they preached that you ought to give GOD the glory, they preached Jesus as the cornerstone and Savior of the world. And all you ex-members KNOW IT!.
So if you didn't and can't understand that then YOU HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME, but yourself. I'm not stating what i think, this is what I KNOW because I heard them with my own ears and i have seen their writings and NOT ONE LETTER anywhere from these men have they ever denigrated GOD or His Darling Son. As Daddy McCollough said, there isn't a name in the Book that is too good for JESUS.
I wasn't living during Grace day,but i have read his writings and i have heard his sermons that have been taped. He too didn't NOT THINK OF HIMSELF as greater than FATHER nor THE SON. They ALL taught that they were servants of Jesus.
One thing i do know for a FACT is that Daddy McCollough HAS THE WORKS!. Some of you all have not done nothing for the LORD, but boast like you are now. As Daddy McCollough said,
if you're jealous get out here in the world and do something too. HE DID!! He did because he was given the power. As he once, said the Power is ON HIGH and that where got his from. He went too GOD in prayer. His works were both spiritual and natural.
This i do know, Daddy McCollough lead hundreds of people into the grace and knowledge of GOD and His Son Jesus Christ, converting them from sin. And for this very fact, even if any of you could attribute sin to Daddy McCollough and are right; his work will cover those sins because as the Apostle James said in 5:20 "Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way SHALL SAVE A SOUL from death, and SHALL HIDE A MULTITUDE OF SINS." Some of ya'll(i know i'm using broken English) have not and will not be able to convert NOBODY. But i'm a witness and there will be hundreds of witness on judgement day that will stand up and testify that Grace, McCollough, and Madison have CONVERTED many a soul.

I can appreciate your passion my friend and I respect the way you defend what you believe but allow me to share with you. I can tell by the way you spell and write that you are young. You are misinformed about GOD using ONE man at a time. Peter and Paul were preaching at the same time. Paul to the Gentiles and Peter to the Jews. You are talking to people who do understand fully what you believe and think based upon what you were taught in the UHOP. Sharing information and discussing experiences in a church does not equate to judging. You made reference to the King James Bible maybe you should read it for yourself instead of trusting the UHOP preachers at face value. Research minor and major Prophets of the OT also to help you out with you understanding of GOD using one man at a time.
