Fields of the Woods


Ambrose Jessup Tomlinson marked the spot where he received a prophecy to start the Church of God of Prophecy with the world’s largest ten commandments. On the hill that now has 5’x4′ letters writing out the commandments, in 1903, AJ Tomlinson climbed the mountain to meet God. He climbed down the mountain with a plan to transform a group of Pentecostals into the 700,000 member church.


He began construction on the Field of the Woods in the 40’s and the construction continued after his death. The park contains a large baptismal pool, a recreation of Golgatha and Jesus’ tomb.
