The Praising Place

has a rich history here in Charlotte that spans over 60 years, from our humble beginnings in East Charlotte, to 35th St, to Hickory Grove Rd, and now at our new 54,000 square foot Worship and Ministry Facility located at 5268 North Sharon Amity Rd. 

We are proud to represent the diversity of the city of Charlotte and that is reflected by our growing congregation that comes from all walks of life and backgrounds. We are truly a melting pot church that proves everyone is welcome regardless of your race, creed, or color.  

When you walk into one of our worship services you will notice that all social labels are removed and what you find are people coming together to worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Here at The Praising Place we are bringing people together. We invite you to come worship with us!

We are...

A church built on the foundation of Jesus Christ.

(Psalms 11:3, 1 Corinthians 3:10-11) Once the foundation is laid the building can go up with the walls. We know that we cannot grow horizontally (numerically) without first growing vertically (spiritually). 

A church that is progressive and forward thinking.

(Ecclesiastes 7:8, Haggai 2:9) You can’t reach a progressive society with backward thinking. We can combine technology and the anointing. Thank God for our history but our prophecy is greater.  

A church that is family minded.

(Psalms 127:3, 145:4, Proverbs 22:6) We will not neglect or deprive the next generation, but will plant the sound doctrine of the Word of God into them so they are prepared for the challenges ahead of them. 

A church where every member ministers.

(Matthew 5:13-16, 9:37) Everyone should be a minister because the harvest is too big for one. We must specialize in networking.

A church that has participatory services.

(Psalms 34:8) We are not spectators but participators. We know that God is to be studied but also experienced. 

A church that will engage in the spirit of excellence.

(Daniel 5:12-14, 6:3) We consider what God is doing to be important enough to give our best. We don’t give God hand-me downs, leftovers, or anything second rate or inferior. We plan, organize, and think things through, because we believe that private preparation helps in public presentation.  

A church that observes order.

(Galatians 5:23) Part of the “fruit of the Spirit” is “temperance” (or self-control). We will have order in the home and order in the church. We listen to and respect those over us in the Lord.  

A church that maintains integrity.

(Proverbs 22:1) God wants you to be successful and prosperous. (Genesis 24:1, 39:3, Psalms 35:27, 2 Kings 18:7, Daniel 6:28, 3 John 2) We don’t use gimmicks to get people to support the ministry. If we provide the vision, God will supply the provision. 

A church of acceptance.

(Galatians 3:28, Acts 17:26, Matthew 13:47) We do not believe in sexism or racism.

We believe...

In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.

In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.

That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.

Holiness to be God's standard of living for His people.

In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.

In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.

In the Lord's Supper and washing of the saints' feet.

In the pre-millennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.

In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
