Charity Christian Center

Church History

The word of God says "upon this rock I will build my church and the gates
of hell shall not prevail against it." Charity Christian Center was formed
upon a vision that the Lord gave our Pastor, Don L. Bradford in 1985. After
several months of home bible study and a miraculous trip to the Kenneth
Hagin Camp Meeting in 1985, the Lord birthed Charity Christian Center
into the pastor's spirit.

Even before the body of Charity Christian Center came together, miracles
began to happen in the lives of its future members. Because of the influence
of Don and Linda Bradford 's ministry, many people were baptized in the
Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. When we
finally came together as a body, the revelation of God's love was so strong
in our hearts, that we were assured that there could only be one possible
name for the church; Charity Christian Center, The church were Jesus is
Lord and you are loved.

Our first service was held on October 25, 1985 in a room which was to be a
bedroom addition to the pastor's house at 5624 Georgetown. The Lord
moved mightily in that service. About 25 to 30 persons united with Pastor
Bradford and his family to officially become members of CCC. From this
day forward, the Lord began to minister to all of us concerning vision, unity,
love and faithfulness. The anointing was powerful and God's presence
always saturated each meeting; so much so that at times all we could do
was weep in the spirit. The hearts of the people were so toward God that a
special faith engulfed the entire ministry to believe God for all our needs,
great or small. The spirit of excellence abided from the very beginning.
At our first service, we incorporated our Childen's Church. Even the
children were excited and flowed in the presence of God. Our music was
also established at this time under the direction of Roland Wilson. Although
few in number and lacking in skill the group always flowed under the
anointing. There was always an expectancy in the air and an assurance that
God was able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all we could ask or
think.

The ministry began to grow rapidly and soon there was hardly enough room
to accommodate the people. We knew then that it was time to find another
place of worship. God was doing so many things in the ministry and
everything was happening so fast that as soon as we stepped out, He
moved. God used a blessed couple in the Lord, Roy and Effie Carter, to
seek possible buildings were we could relocate. Pastor Bradford found the
Perkins Rd property and a group of us toured the building. As soon as we
entered the sanctuary, we knew that this was the place God had appointed
for us at this time. We prayed and set out to acquire the property. Three
families, Charles and Dianne Brooks, Lucien and Brenda Ephron and
Anthony and Sherry Gauthier stood with the pastors to support the acquisition of
the property. God moved in a miraculous way and by December of that
year, we had our first service at 4270 Perkins Road.

The Lord added to the church daily through much prayer and steadfastness
in His Word. We began to add other ministries, such as the nursery, prayer
room counseling, tape and sound department, teen ministry, ushers and
greeters, van ministry and an evangelism team. But there yet remain much
work to do. God gave to us a specific area to which to minister. We believe
we must reach the South Baton Rouge area, the City, the State, and the
World for Christ.

In keeping with this vision, the Lord laid the former Blundon Home
property on the pastor's heart. After much deliberation with the Blundon
Home Board of Directors and fasting by the church body, the Blundon
Home property was acquired for the kingdom of God for the miraculous
price of $200,000.00.

Kingdom Kids Daycare center was established at the new location August of
1991, along with our Victorious Living Ministry, a Clothing Distribution
Center and our Summer Day Camp. On Sunday, December 17,1992, we
held our first service in our new Location. The following year Charity
Christian Academy was established and Kingdom Kids was changed to
Charity Christian Preschool and moved to our new Highland Road
Location.

Our Church ministry has expanded to numerous other community outreach
ventures. One of which was the Hurricane relief center in August of 2005 to
provide aide, food: shelter, clothing, and spiritual support to the thousands
of hurricane evacuees from the metropolitan New Orleans area.

"As the Lord has answered me and said, write the vision and make it plain
upon tables, that he may run that readeth it, for the vision is yet for an
appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry,
wait for it: because it will surely come, it will not tarry." (Habakkuk 2:2,3)
