New Age Church of Truth

The New Age Church of Truth was founded in the mid-1960s by Gilbert N. Holloway (b. 1915), who emerged in the 1930s as a metaphysical teacher. He was widely read in the available Rosicrucian and theosophical literature and conscious of his own psychic powers, and by the 1960s he worked as a psychic with a national following. In 1967 a Pentecostal experience (which included speaking in tongues ) converted him to Christianity, though Holloway cast his faith in a metaphysical thought world. He then changed his organization's name to New Age Church of Truth, the Christ Light Community. From the headquarters of his church in Deming, New Mexico, he traveled widely as a lecturer, healer, and psychic reader into the 1980s. Current address unavailable.
