Who We Are

Our Pastors

In May of 1977, Phillip and Cheryl Jackson graduated from RHEMA Bible Training Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Spirit of God led them back to Charlotte where they soon began home Bible studies which then developed into Grace Christian Center. The name for the church was given by the Holy Spirit emphasizing "Grace" as the unmerited favor and love of God with the operational power of the Spirit of God at work; "Christian" identifying the group of people; and "Center" identifying the many facets involved in the ministry.


Our association with RHEMA began when Phillip and Cheryl Jackson were introduced to Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin through his monthly publication, "The Word of Faith". The ministry of Kenneth E. Hagin spanned more than 65 years after God miraculously healed him of a deformed heart and an incurable blood disease at the age of 17. Today the scope of his ministry continues worldwide and includes: Radio, All Faiths' Crusades, RHEMA Correspondence School, RHEMA Bible Training Center, RHEMA Ministerial Association International and RHEMA Bible Church. After purchasing Rev. Hagin's books and attending an All Faiths' Crusade, Phillip and Cheryl sensed the call of God on their hearts to attend RHEMA Bible Training Center. Today Grace Christian Center is an Associate Church of RHEMA Bible Church, and voluntarily submits to the principles, standards, ideals and procedures established by RHEMA Bible Church both spiritually and financially.

Grace Christian Center

We desired to have a logo identification that was vital and exciting. The logo would be one that would honor and glorify our Lord and also be as bold and dynamic as the Word of God we continually preach. Thus our logo was designed as one that fulfills present and future needs. It is a combination of strong Christian symbols and is versatile, memorable and timeless. The unbroken circle symbolizes eternity; the triangle represents the Trinity; and the heart implies God's love in and for us. The interaction and interdependence of the heart and the triangle reflect the relationship of man to God and also denote the fellowship and interaction of strength and unity in the Body of Christ. Combined, these symbols create a bold image that is simple, striking and easily remembered.
