History, Vision, Beliefs
Koinonia Christian Center Church (KCC) was founded by Bishop Rosie S. O’neal in 1989 with seven members. The name of the church was Koinonia Christian Church (which was later changed to Koinonia Christian Center Church Ministries, Inc.). The church held its first service on February 3, 1989, at the Ramada Inn in Greenville, NC. After the initial service, KCC moved back into the home of Bishop Rosie and Bro. Toiriste O’neal in Greenville, NC. Bishop O’neal continued to have Sunday services and Tuesday night Bible Study for about 18 months at their home.
In the summer of 1991, KCC moved to a storefront facility which held about 60 people and the church remained there until July 1993. On August 15, 1993, KCC moved into a church facility on the corner of Hudson and Ward Streets that could seat approximately 440 people. During this time, KCC began to experience tremendous growth. Bishop O’neal was divinely connected to her spiritual father, Bishop I.V. Hilliard, and received principles that helped catapult the ministry to another level of excellence and favor. In August of 2004, KCC moved into their present facility at 1405 SW Greenville Blvd and currently ministers to over 2300 members.
The vision of KCC is to feed believers and instruct believers in the Word of God that they might live within the realm of their inheritance, equip believers to function in their ministry, and organize the efforts of the believers within their ministries to win the lost to Jesus Christ.
