Christ Temple of Praise (CTOP) was birthed on Easter Sunday, April 7th, 1996. From its initial membership of Pastor M.K., Lady Karen and their two young daughters, the church has grown to include over a few hundred members, only through God’s grace and favor. 

Since the church’s inception, many ministries have been birthed. Among them is a twenty-four hour AM radio station, WVOT – 1420. This gospel/inspirational station serves Wilson and the surrounding community, reaching over 200,000 lives each day. This ministry allows the voice of God to be heard in homes across the Eastern North Carolina region.

It is our intent to impact Wilson in a profound and significant way; that not only are lives touched; but changed. For we are; EXALTING THE LORD, EQUIPPING THE SAINTS AND EXPANDING THE KINGDOM!
