A Words from Members: 

You will never meet a man that will keep it real with his church. This the REAL DEAL MAN OF GOD …

Pastor T. McCarter is a man who cares about the vision that God has for him to carry out. He is also a man of God who cares about people. No who you are where you come from or what your race is. The word he brings from GOD is for all those who wants to receive it.

He not only talks the talk but he walks the walk. He is an awesome pastor. He has inspired me to do so many great things that I would not have normally done. He encouraged me to buy a house when the odds were against but. He is an awesome powerful man of God.

It’s no shocker that Bishop Tiff McCarter was nominated for Community Outreach for the 10th Annual Lamplighter Awards and was the very first Pastor of the Month by Radio One! Read more below…
