The House of God Which is the Church of the Living God, The Pillar and Ground of Truth Without Controversy (Keith Dominion), a predominantly black Pentecostal church, emerged in the 1930s. Following founder Mary L. Tate's death in 1931, the Church of the Living God, The Pillar and Ground of Truth, which she founded, was divided into three districts. One district was headed by Tate's daughter-in-law, M. F. L. Keith. It gradually became independent of the other districts and took its present name.
