Who We Are?

Word Alive Church International was birthed on May 1, 1994 as a Bible Study group lead by Pastor Wesley T. Cherry which originally consisted of four families. By staying true to the vision of the ministry and following the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, we have seen the Lord continually add covenant partners to the ministry and souls to the Kingdom of God.

We joined Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International (F.G.B.C.F.I.) in 1995 which provides our apostolic covering. In October 1999, Pastor Cherry was elevated to the office of District Overseer of the F.G.B.C.F.I. for the Northern Virginia District.

In January 1999, we became affiliated with Faith Bible College and serve as a satellite site for individuals interested in obtaining college training and/or college credits in theology.

In 2007 Overseer Cherry was installed to the Office of Bishop in Atlanta, GA.

In 2010 Bishop Cherry became the Bishop of the State of Virginia.
