About Christian Heritage Training Center

Christian Heritage Training Center Community Church is a world-class training center that provides comprehensive spiritual preparation for believers in Christ Jesus so that they may go out and reap the Lord’s ready harvest.

We reside on Chicago’s South side; however, the quality of every aspect of our organization will always be the best in the world; giving our best is our reasonable service to God. And, while our focus is initially domestic, we believe that God can and will expand our ministry around the globe.

The goal of Christian Heritage is not to build a mega-church, but to build a training center, of which the church is a part of the ministry. Our model is to be the “Moody Bible Institute of the South side of Chicago.” Other aspects of the ministry will include: a bible school, educational services organization (CAPS/CWEM), school, day care, center for teenage or battered women, a shelter, and numerous other ministries.

Serving God is not simply a spiritual exercise. We cannot “be so heavenly bound that we are no earthly good.” Serving God is a commitment of our entire lives, which in addition to the spiritual must include the cultural, emotional, psychological, and physical aspects of our lives in Christ.

Training at Christian Heritage is first and foremost in the Word of God, in our life in Christ and in the Holy Spirit. Christian Heritage Training Center is an interdenominational church that has it foundation in Pentecostalism – that is, we believe in the moving and unction of the Holy Spirit.

Christian Heritage is a “working ministry.” We believe that God called His people to accept Him as Lord and Savior, serve Him unwaveringly, and apply our talents to touching the lives of others and building His kingdom.

Our theme scripture is “…the harvest is truly plenteous but the laborers are few” (Matthew 9:37). God’s “ready harvest” includes those who need to know Jesus Christ as Lord, as well as those who believe that Jesus is the Messiah but have been “battered” by their experience in “churchanity” and in life. Christian Heritage wants to prepare people to be ready vessels so that they can reach other lost, downtrodden, dispossessed, disenfranchised, battered, confused, and directionless to share God’s message of salvation, deliverance and His soon coming Kingdom.

Holy Communion/Lord’s Supper

We believe that Holy Communion is a fundamental worship of the church. It is one of the communal religious rituals that gives structure, definition and expression to the relationship between God and the company of Christian believers. The Lord’s Supper involves the breaking of bread that is symbolic of Jesus’ body, and the drinking of “wine” which is symbolic of His blood that was shed at Calvary.

Water Baptism

We believe that water baptism is received on profession of faith in Christ, and sets the divine seal of the Spirit on those who are being saved. It is symbolic of the burial of the old sinful nature and the resurrection of a new spiritual creation.


Spiritual Baptism (Acts 2:4)

We believe that Spiritual baptism is the source of power for living an ‘apostolic’ life. Christians should expect to receive the same evidence of that experience as the earliest Christians received on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4). Baptism of God’s Holy Spirit is a special gift to believers, which brings spiritual life, power, wisdom and understanding, and divine revelation, which leads to a better understanding of God’s Word and His perfect ways. Fundamentally, the filling of the Spirit is directly related to prophetic ministry and revelation. However, we do not teach that speaking in tongues (glossolalia) is the only outward manifestation or evidence of this power.
