Pastor Cedric desires that Christians
“be filled with the knowledge of the LORD’s will,
might walk worthy of the LORD,
be strengthened with the LORD’s might” (See Colossians 1:9-12).
After 36 years of religion, Cedric Charles eventually repented of his sins and put his faith in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! The LORD used a loving wife and the patient love of a good man, George Richard, to carefully and lovingly respond to Cedric’s many questions, while Cedric and family worked and lived in Middle East. Cedric’s conversion, public confession of faith, and baptism took place at the Yokohama International Baptist Church in Yokohama, Japan in August 1988.
God’s Call to ministry:
In October 1996, Cedric Charles responded to the Lord’s call to ministry. It all began while Cedric was enrolled in the Discipleship Training course at Nassau Bay Baptist Church (NBBC of Houston, Texas, the Pastor’s home church). The course was entitled: “Experiencing God” by Henry Blackaby.
Pastor Cedric was ordained as a Minister of the Gospel at Nassau Bay Baptist Church (Houston, Texas) in July 2003. Pastor Dr. David Fannin presided over the ordination.
Cedric Charles was born in 1952 in Curacao to Stafford and Edris Charles. He moved to Dominica at the age of 6, finished elementary school at the Catholic school in Pointe Michel, Dominica, and high school at the St. Mary’s Academy in Roseau, Dominica. Cedric eventually moved to St. Croix (U.S. Virgin Islands) to join his father and the rest of the family; his father worked as an operator at the Hess Oil Refinery on St. Croix. The Charles’ family including Cedric eventually became naturalized American citizens.
Pastor Cedric met the beautiful Suzette Powell on St. Croix, and they eventually were married in 1982 on St. Croix. Pastor Cedric and his wife Suzette Charles have two wonderful sons: Cedric A. Charles and Jason M. Charles. Both of Pastor Cedric’s sons are believers: they have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and have been baptized. They were both married in Dallas, Texas in 2010.
