<p>The Church of God and Saints of Christ describes itself as "the oldest African-American congregation in the United States that adheres to the tenets of Judaism."&nbsp;The congregation believes in one God, love for all mankind and the Ten Commandments as the basis for ethical and moral living.&nbsp;It also subscribes to the teaching that among the descendants of the biblical Israelites are peoples of African descent. Within the church's tenets, anyone can embrace Judaism and become a member.&nbsp;The adherents believe that Jesus&nbsp;was neither God nor the Son of God, but instead a strict adherent to Judaism and a prophet sent by God. They also consider their founder, William Saunders Crowdy, to be a prophet.</p>
