Who we are

Bishop Carver Poindexter, Senior Pastor and Founder, and Pastor Lorene Poindexter, Co-Pastor and Co-Founder of the Love of Christ Church, founded the Love of Christ Church in 1980 with a passion to uplift those who are lost and struggling. They have continued in this mandate to win souls for over 35 years.


Our Vision and Mission

The vision and mission of the Love of Christ Church is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through preaching, teaching, discipling and demonstrating God’s love in action. Everything that is done in our ministry is to evangelize the lost from every fabric of society and to develop people into strong Christians, spreading the Love of Christ in the home, community and the world.

The Love of Christ Church is a Christian-based community of Love, Faith and Spiritual Growth. Our close-knit church family is welcome for all to take part in the fellowship, prayer, worship and overall sense of community.

There are members at all levels, from new believers to long-standing, devout ministers of the gospel. Our Bishop and Pastor are warm and friendly and love greeting visitors, new members and old friends at each service.

Each service (click for Service Times) includes a powerful message from our Bishop that is sure to inspire and strengthen you for the ups and downs of life. We also enjoy jubilant singing and a dynamic atmosphere of praise and worship.

We believe in:
Helping those who are in need

The only perfect person is Jesus Christ. Compassion is one of the core values that we aim to share through prison ministry, community outreach, donation drives, etc.

Christian Values

Jesus gave us the truth, we do our best to live it and to share it with those in our circle and around the world.

Spiritual Development

Helping people to grow spiritually through teaching, training and hands-on ministry experience.


Spreading the message of Jesus Christ throughout our community and the people we touch.
