Our Story

"Preaching the Gospel. Teaching the Word. Reaching the World for Jesus."

Word of Faith Christian Center began January 12, 1997, with ten members – literally, five adults and five children. Our membership has flourished into more than 850 people and is continuing to blossom. In August 1993, Dr. Orlando Burt and his wife Pastor Toni, were led by the Spirit of God to move from Detroit, Michigan to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to begin their medical practice. Over the next two years, the practice continued to grow and became very successful. However, in 1995, the Lord spoke to Dr. Burt while in prayer and instructed him to begin a Bible study on Saturday afternoons in his office. As the months went by, the Bible study took off!

In 1996, Dr. Burt accepted the call into the five-fold ministry (found in Ephesians 4:11-13) as a teacher. The Lord spoke to him clearly from Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Impartation of revelation knowledge to the Body of Christ is his primary calling. Over the next year, Dr. Burt served as a minister at what was then known as Word of Faith Christian Center in Jackson, Mississippi (now Faith4Life, Jackson). This was familiar ground as Dr.Burt has been a member of what is now known as Word of Faith International Christian Center (which is under the leadership of Bishop Keith A. Butler) since 1988. While attending and faithfully serving at Word of Faith Jackson, God mandated Dr. Burt to open Word of Faith Christian Center Hattiesburg and the rest is history!
