Cherry broke away from his large Prince George's County church to form a new church in July 1999 after, he says, he heard God using "an almost audible voice," telling him to "Get out of Zion and get out now." Tomorrow, Maryland's highest legal authority will consider whether Cherry and his new congregation can continue to use $39 million worth of property, including the church buildings and a Learjet, acquired by his former denomination, African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church.

The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International, which comprises 1,500 congregations, "has been designed to bridge the gap," said Bishop Paul S. Morton Sr., who founded the movement in 1992. Its 9th annual conference, the first on the East Coast, will convene at the Baltimore Convention Center.
