"The Purpose is Unity"

"Where Worship is a Family Affair"


     Bishop C. L. Carter, Sr. & First Lady Deborah V. Carter


                                          Bishop C. L. Carter, Sr. has been the spiritual Pastor and                                                   Founder of the First Missionary Baptist Church since 1982.                                                                                Bishop Carter is married to Elder Deborah V. Carter. 


                                                                               He  is   a   native  of  Atlanta where he attended  Carver  Bible                                                                                Institute and College.  He furthered his studies at Morehouse                                                                                College School of  Continuing Education.   He has been in the                                                                                ministry for over 50 years.


                                                                             On March 3, 1992, Pastor Carter received an Honorary Doctor                                                                        of Divinity  from  World Changers Ministries Christian Center                                                                                where Dr. Creflo Dollar, Jr. is the pastor. 


                                                                           Through a vision, God challenged Pastor Carter to establish a                                                                             Bible   Institute   that  would   fully  train  men  and  women   to                                                                          continue to carry out  Jesus’ final  words  to  His  followers as                                                                     stated  in  Matthew 28:19.    From  that  challenge  the  Carter                                                                       Theological  Institute  of Ministry, formerly  Carter  College  of                                                                               Ministry,  was officially  established  and  consecrated  on May                                                                               27, 1990.


On April 8, 2002, Pastor Carter was consecrated as a Bishop.   He was bestowed with an Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree from Christ United Theological School in Cleveland, Ohio where Bishop J. Delano Ellis, II is the president on March 16, 2005.  The Morehouse College of Atlanta, Georgia inducted Bishop Carter into the Martin Luther King Jr. Board of Preachers on April 5, 2007. He was featured in the August 2007 Gospel Today Magazine as one of “The Most Loved Pastors.” The Concerned Black Clergy of Metropolitan Atlanta, Inc. recognized and honored him as one of the Top 25 Pastors at their Annual Salute to Black Fathers Banquet on June 15, 2008. Bishop Carter is affliated with the Kingdom Connection Fellowship under the leadership of Bishop Jerome Ross and serves as the State Bishop. Currently Bishop Carter is the Presiding Bishop over Kingdom First Fellowship, Inc.


Bishop Carter has made an incalculable contribution to the creation, the promotion and the maintenance of a healthy spiritual atmosphere in the community and at First Missionary, where he has the responsibility for the teaching, training and guidance of the ministers under his care and leadership.  He has constantly encouraged and actively assisted over twenty-five pastors in the establishment of their own churches.


Bishop Carter, a godly man, exhibits the heart of a true shepherd. Just like the shepherd, Bishop Carter is available to his flock 24/7. He is a Bishop who is interested in every area of his members’ lives. His love and concern for God’s people are not confined to the walls of his church only.  Through the media ministry of the church as well as his prayerful counseling of other pastors and ministers, Bishop Carter’s impact upon the spiritual welfare of this church, this community, this state and this country is as far reaching as it is immeasurable.  He is dedicated and committed to serve as a voice of the voiceless.


Bishop Carter’s unlimited love and devotion to the First Missionary family and the community is a precious gift from God to us. Bishop Carter is truly God’s Minister, Counselor, Teacher, Healer, Prophet, Evangelist and Preacher to every man, woman, boy and girl.
