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

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.
