It was a full twenty-seven years later that Charles Price Jones organized a similar convention for "colored" Holiness members due to their dis­ satisfaction, says Jones, with the spiritual condition of the Baptists: As a Baptist I had doctrinal assurance; I wanted spiritual as­ heart peace, rest of soul, the joy of salvation in the surance, understanding of a new heart, a new mind, a new spirit, con­ stantly renewed and comforted by the Holy Ghost (Titus 3:5-8; John 14: 15-20). But when I reached Jackson, Miss., I became convinced by the Lord that what I needed, all His people needed; that without following peace with all men and holiness, no man could see the Lord (Heb. 12: 1-14); that no man could follow Christ in his own strength; that therefore it was the privilege and duty of all to be filled with the Spirit (Eph. 5: 16-18) and walk by the Spirit (Gal. 5:15-26); that Christ in us is the Hope of Glory (Col.
