His Testimony


As I sat there in a Revival Meeting, my heart was stirred by the word of God. I became deeply convicted. "The very moment you believe," the minister was saying, "Christ will enter your heart." Right then and there, I cried out to God for forgiveness and cleansing from all my sins. That was an unforgettable night - May 26, 1964.

Vision and Background


I have a great love for humanity, and it is humbling that God has allowed this ministry to be planted among His creation. It is our responsibility to reach mankind and make a difference in the earth as we touch and change lives for Kingdom Building. I believe God has something in store for the people of Charlotte and the surrounding areas. Redeeming Word Ministries is a place of Hope, Healing, and Restoration.

We will be radical in the things of God. We will be a church full of love, and full of people who have a desire to serve, worship, and give their hearts to God that will equate them not to just have religion but salvation. By this, we must uncover, discover, and recover by embracing the process of Hope, Healing, and Restoration. Bishop Mitchell and his wife Lady Cynthia were united in marriage in June 1974 and are the proud parents of their two sons Micheal Richard II and Marcel Ryan.

One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple.
