He lived a beautiful life of holiness under the late Bishop G.T. Haywood.
Bishop sanders was pastor of Christ Temple Church. He was Bishop of the State of Indiana of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World. He was founder, and Bishop of the Home Board of Indiana.
Bishop Sanders was small in stature; however, when he spoke he stood tall among his contemporaries. He was misunderstood by many because he was blunt, straight-forward and very plan spoken at time. Bishop was one of the most profound Bible teachers of his time. He possessed such a keen mind and chronological knowledge of the Scriptures that he could cause you to practically sit on the edge of your seat as he taught the fathomless riches of God's word.
There was an absolute sternness and positiveness with which he worked for God. He stood by his convictions. On October 15, 1972 this stalwart soldier of the cross, laid down his earthly burdens. For by the will of God, after that he had served his own generation, Bishop Oscar Haywood Sanders fell on sleep. Audio Recordings of Bishop Oscar Sanders are available in our audio library.
