Charles Price “C P” Jones died 1/19/1949.  He was converted to Christ at about twenty.  While pastoring Baptist churches he clearly saw in Scripture the doctrine of entire sanctification.  Eventually his stand for holiness and for abstinence got him kicked out of his church.  Later he helped form the Church of Christ (Holiness), an important Black holiness denomination, which by-the-way, opposed speaking in tongues.  His first wife, Fannie Brown (wedding date unknown), died in 1916.  He married Pearl Reed 1/4/1918 – to this second marriage were born three sons.  Jones had been born 12/9/1865 in Floyd Co., Georgia.

He wrote over 1,000 Gospel songs; http://www.hymntime.com/tch/bio/j/o/n/jones_cp.htm lists 139 including “All I Need” “Come unto Me” “Deeper, Deeper” “I Will Make the Darkness Light.”

I would not be denied,  I would not be denied,

Till Jesus came and made me whole,  I would not be denied.
